I am currently writing a section about the Japanese writing system. I have previously stated that Japanese was originally written completely in Kanji. However, people found it very difficult.
Therefore, the simpler Hiragana and Katakana was introduced in the ninth century.
How would I write this sentence in Japanese? If "simpler" was replaced with "simple", I would say: だから、単純なひらがなとカタカナが九世紀に導入されました.
