Yuji Akari & Akebono


The current Hiragana was prescribed in 1900. The rest of characters, which hadn’t been elected as Hiragana, are called Hentai kana. There are several types of Hentai kana, and Akari and Akebono are two of them. Katakana is not included in Hentai kana. Latin alphabets are designed only in capital letters. The lower-case letters are in small caps.

Yuji are 5 series of fonts in which the original characters written by the calligrapher Yuji Kataoka are typefaced. There are 3 different types of Kana and 2 different types of Hentai kana (the former style of kana) fonts.
