So, I’ve been casually studying Japanese for a little while… very casually. As I worked to learn the hiragana character set, I came across a few sites that group similarly-formed characters together as an aid to memorization. None of them really seemed 100% right to me, so I made my own… it may be that nobody but me will find this useful, but for whatever it may be worth, here it is. (The two characters in parentheses are obsolete in modern writing, but can be found in older written material.)
