, in hiragana or in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, which each represent one mora. Both are written in two strokes and represent [ju͍].

When small and preceded by an -i kana, this kana represents not a separate sound but a modification of that of another (see yōon).[1]

* The yōon characters ゅ and ュ are encoded in Japanese Braille by prefixing "-u" kana (e.g. Ku, Su) with a yōon braille indicator, which can be combined with the "Dakuten" or "Handakuten" braille indicators for the appropriate consonant sounds.
