grave in Italian)

To remove ambiguities, the Japanese syllables are preceded by the hex
code, in the version of 8-bit ASCII that includes kana, of the kana
symbol represented. The symbols whose phonetic values I give as yi and
ye have the appearance, respectively:

    *      ********
*******            *
    *         *   *
 *  *         *  *
 *  *         *
*******       *
    *      *******
