Japanese is actually similar to English, in that respect!
We've 26 lowercase and 26 uppercase (similar but different symbols with
the same pronounciation), while they have 46 hiragana and 46 katakana
(when you ignore the voicing marks and such).

It's just the addition of kanji that complicates things... :)
