As I am in the progress of learning Japanese, and I enjoy computer programming, I could not resist.
Hiragana and then Katakana being the two basic writing "alphabets" it seams only logical to code them first. :)
Thus said, look out for "Katakana Flash" in the near future! ;)
This is also possibly my first project to be ported to Linux. And as such I am using a cross platform API, at the moment this is FLTK. As I have finally resorted to using MS VC++ it is unlikely at this point that I will still port to Linux...although eager to revisit a cross-platform project in the future, this will no doubt depend on user feedback... you can still git a copy of the now dormant FLTK version.

Yeah, yet another Kanji flash card program.... Well I have an interest in Japanese, and didn't feel like paying for something I can code for free, and it looks like a small challenge. :) Just spent about an hour playing with the an API "RAD C++", will give credit in the about box when I have coded a little more of the app. :) Is still in a "shell" state and not fully functional, will hopefully have a working version soon. ;)
I have a whole bunch of ideas for Japanese learning applications / dictionaries etc... :P
Any feature requests, bug reports, suggestions are always welcome.
