How do you say Japan in Japan in symbols?

Japanese have 3 different styles of writing: Hiragana (Native Japanese) Katakana (Foreign things) and Kanji (Chinese style of writing) Hiragana and Katakana both have alphabets that use characters that represent specific sounds. Kanji uses characters to represent entire words. 日本 is the Kanji version. ほん is how to write it in Hiragana. And though you would never use it, this is how you would write it in Katakana: ニホン. The Romanized version of this would translate to Nihon.

There is a new type called Romaji. Romaji is just the pronunciation of a Japanese word.
