Finally memorized hiragana!

Recommended Posts

but when i tried to translate some romaji into actual japanese, some i cant translate. Like "azai nagamasa" the "ga" and "za" isn't included in the chart. How can i write them? Are they katakana or kanji?

The sound of most kana can be modified by adding nigori or "ten-ten" ("point-point").

"ga" is "ka" ( か ) with a nigori to get が .  

Similarly "za" is a modified "sa":     さ => ざ


edit: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiragana
