Man'yōgana continue to appear in some regional names of present-day Japan, especially in [[Kyushu]]. A phenomenon similar to man'yōgana, called [[ateji]] (当て字), still occurs, where words (including [[loanword]]s) are spelled out using kanji for their phonetic value: for example, 倶楽部 (''kurabu'', club).

In man'yōgana, kanji mapped to sounds in a number of different ways, some of which were straightforward, others less so.
