Japanese Character Recognition

While in Tokyo the summer of 2017 for a study abroad, I was interested in developing a program that attempts to "recognize" Japanese hiragana characters. When given an input picture, the program "sweeps" through the pixels using horizontal and vertical lines in order to detect pixel differences between the black character and the white background. Based on this data, the program then attempts to find the closest match in the database that I had initially created.
