Japanese is a tricky language and to be honest, I don’t encourage self study. But if you live in an area with no possible way of taking Japanese classes, there’s no other way, right? :) I’ve did some research since a lot of you dear followers asked about this matter and found some useful links~
My advice would be to start learning Hiragana and Katakana first. Hiragana is here and Katakana here. Remember! The most important aspect of kana is learning the correct order of the strokes! (click on each symbol to see an animation of the specific order)
