The reason they are so alike is because the Japanese borrowed that alphabet off the Chinese, so a lot of… Read More
Both Languages use a lot of the same (or similar chinese characters), but Japanese also mixes in Hiragana and Katakana, which are phonetic symbols that look much simpler, many of which look like stick figures or curved figures (Chinese has very few characters with curves). Here are samples of Chinese text, and the exact same text in Japanese: Chinese 人人生而自由，在尊嚴和權利上一律平等。他們賦有理性和良心，並應以兄弟關係的精神相對待。 Japanese すべての人間は、生まれながらにして自由であり、かつ、尊厳と権利とについて平等である。人間は、理性と良心を授けられてあり、互いに同胞の精神をもって行動しなければならない。 Using Romanization, you can also clearly tell the difference.

Modern Japanese has three scripts: Kanji, Hiragana and Katakana. Kanji is the original script using Chinese characters, imported from Mainland Asia. Hiragana is a flowing script adapted from Kanji (and simplified) which is used for grammar and if you don't know the Kanji for a certain word. Katakana is like Hiragana, but very angular. This script is used for writing words that originate in another language, and the names of foreigners.
Only Japanese names (and possibly Chinese names) are written in kanji, though a Japanese person may be able to choose out some good characters from the 4,800+ kanji characters in existence. If you want to know your name in KATAKANA (foreign words writing), it's ダニエル.
The Japanese don't have just one alphabet. They actually use four different ones: kanji, hiragana, katakana and romanji. Kanji were originally developed in China and are themselves pictographs that have been greatly simplified from their first forms. These began to been introduced to Japan in the 4th Century B.C.E, but initially they were only used for writting in Classical Chinese. It wasn't until the 7th Century that a system of using the kanji phoenetically as… Read More

Hiragana is the basic, so that is most used in sense. When writing in Japanese you need a mixture of Hiragana Kanji and sometimes Katakana.

There are several different writing systems for the Japanese language. First, you have the native Japanese words, which are written with Hiragana. Then, you have non-native Japanese words which have been "borrowed" from other languages (a large amount come from English), and are written with katakana. The Japanese also use Chinese characters, which they call kanji, which are used for parts of a noun, adjective, pronoun, or verb. When you don't know the reading for… Read More
Absolutely not. Japanese writing differs largely from Chinese with the exception of a variety of kanji (while the Chinese characters may match in meaning with the Japanese kanji, they are almost always pronounced entirely differently). In addition, they are not even in the same language family, and have different gramatical systems.
There is no such thing as a Japanese Alphabet. The Japanese use 3 different systems of writing, but none of them are alphabetic. Kanji, or Chinese characters, are used for most verbs and words. Hiragana, a simplified and flowing script, is used for verbal conjugation or when you don't remember the Kanji for a certain word. Katakana, a simplified and angular script, is used for words borrowed from other languages.

The fact that there are two identical phonetic "alphabets" and both are used together, but they are not interchangeable. The fact that a… Read More
