spelling kana吉野のヨ Yoshino no "yo"

, in hiragana or in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represents one mora. The hiragana is made in two strokes, while the katakana in three. Both represent [jo].

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 ょ and ョ are encoded in Japanese Braille by prefixing "-o" kana (e.g. Ko, So) with a yōon braille indicator, which can be combined with the "Dakuten" or "Handakuten" braille indicators for the appropriate consonant sounds.
