Exercise in Japanese Counters is a HyperCard stack which is designed to give students practice in 20 different counters in Japanese. It makes use of Development Tools for Japanese (Hatasa, Henstock, and Hsu) to handle Japanese characters without KanjiTalk or Japanese Language Kit. HyperCard Player is not necessary.

Exercise in Japanese Counters is a freeware for non-commercial use. Anybody can make a copy and use it on his/her Macintosh. Since it is a HyperCard application, the machine is limited to Macintosh.

The size of the window used in this exercise is set to 640X480. So it requires a monitor which supports the resoulution. Old one-box Macintoshes with 9-inchi monior will not be able to show the entire window.
