Japanese katakana syllabogram ラ is derived from the standard script (楷書) form of the Japanese kanji 良 (good). If you look at the diagram above, you will notice that the shape of katakana ラ follows the top-right structure of the character 良, and it has the same stroke order. Although the shape of katakana syllabogram ラ is different from the shape of hiragana syllabogram ら, both syllabograms are based on the same Japanese kanji 良.
