Code Table Japanese Hiragana and Katakana

December 2007

This table contains 172 mappings of character encodings for Japanese Hiragana and Katakana from the East Asian Coded Character set (ANSI/NISO Z39.64, or "EACC") to character encodings in the Universal Character Set (UCS, ISO-IEC 10646)/Unicode. Character codes are given in hexadecimal notation. Each character is presented on a separate row. The first column contains the MARC-8 EACC 24-bit code (in hex), the second column contains the corresponding UCS/Unicode 16-bit code (in hex), the third column contains the UTF-8 code (in hex) for the UCS character, the fourth column contains a representation of the character (where possible), the fifth column contains a character name or description.

Not all characters display in all browsers. We have attempted to allow for font families that show each character set, but you must have one of these fonts on your computer. See the W3C site for a discussion of fonts:
