hiragana (japanese alphabet)
there are no “tones” in the japanese language like there are english and other languages.
the very first thing youll learn when learning japanese is the alphabet, or Hiragana. there are 5 vowels in the japanese language. “A” pronounced “ah” “E” pronunced “eh” like in the work “Elk” “O” pronounced “oo” and “I” pronounced like the letter “e” All hiragana letters end in these vowels.
How to say good morning, is “OhHaiyo gozaimasu.” Identify the vowel used.
the vowel used is “O” Since you can hear how it sounds at the end, the “SU” at the end, clearly is the vowel “O”
