Ri (kana)

, in hiragana, or in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represent one mora. Both are written with two strokes and both represent the sound [ɾi] (listen). Both originate from the character 利. The Ainu language uses a small katakana ㇼ to represent a final r sound after an i sound (イㇼ ir).
