"a" is pronounced like "ah" but shortened and cut off at the end. "i" is pronounced like "ee" as in "me" "u" is pronounced like "oo" as in "moo" "e" is pronounced like "eh" as in "met" "o" is pronounced like "oh" as in "no" "Fu" ふ isn't pronounced like an F sound but your teeth are close enough to your lips that it sounds like it does. Make sure your teeth do not touch your lips when making this sound "tsu" つ is pronounced with the t and s combined. It sounds like the last part of "plates" Any "r" sounds are pronounced like a trill, but you only trill once. Instead of trolling "rrrrrrrr" only do the trill once.

In other words, the "r" is flipped. It's a soft "r," unlike the hard American "r"

@MelSBancroft it's more like an "L" sounds but we say it so fast that is sounds like an "R"
