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.
Japanese uses 3 writing systems together, but none of them are alphabets.
Katakana and Hiragana are syllabaries (lists of syllables).
Kanji are Chinese characters used to respresent whole words or ideas.
Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji. Kanji was based off of some Chinese characters.
its not egypts for sure these guys are wrong
The Irish uncial alphabet is the type of writing that is used in Ireland. The type of the writing system is the alphabet that has 18 letters. The direction of writing is usually from left to right.
the modified version called the Cyrillic alphabet, is the basis of the writing system used in Russia today.
There is the traditional writing, Kanji, which comes from Chinese origins. There is hiragana which is like an alphabet of syllables for all sounds used. Then there is Katakana, also an alphabet of syllables, which is used for foreign words.

There is no such thing as "the Inca alphabet". The Incans had no writing system. They used knotted strings to record numbers, but there is not much evidence that this system was used for anything else.
The ancient Romans used the alphabet we use: the Latin alphabet. Latin was their language. Western languages have adopted and adapted the Latin alphabet.
No alphabet is used in China. Chinese writing does not include alphabetic writing.
The three writing systems are:KatakanaHiraganaKanjiThere is also a 4th system called Romaji, which is the romanization of Japanese, but this system is not native to Japan.
The Japanese writing system is based on Chinese writing, and is typologically an ideographic system with elements of a syllabic system. The art of Japanese writing is called calligraphy. To be precise, modern Japanese is written using three writing systems: 1. Kanji (Chinese characters) are ideographic and stand for whole words or morphemes on their own. 2. Hiragana (syllabic characters, or a syllabary similar to an alphabet) is used to spell out Kanji in pronounceable syllables, if needed, or to spell out the endings and inflections and particles used to build sentences. 3. Katakana (a second syllabary similar to hiragana) is used to spell out foreign words or in advertising; it's function is similar to italics in English. Japanese also has an official romanization called Romaji, which is a system for spelling Japanese using Roman (Latin) letters. Kana
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 way of writing Japanese called manyougana was developed. From this grew the hiragana and katakana alphabet. Hiragana came from the cursive writing of kanji and was used as an easier way of writing Japanese. Katakana were similarly developed, but they are usually just a small part of a kanji which had the needed sound.
