, in hiragana, or in katakana, is an obsolete Japanese kana, each of which represent one mora. It is presumed that ゐ represented /ɰi/ and that ゐ and い indicated different pronunciations until somewhere between the Kamakura period and the Taishō period when they both came to denote /i/. This kana was deemed obsolete in 1946, and replaced with い and イ. It is now rare in everyday usage. In fact, in onomatopoeia and foreign words, the katakana form ウィ (U-[small-i]) is preferred.

One modern-day usage of this kana is the Japanese spelling of Nikka Whiskey, which is written "ニッカウヰスキー" (nikka uwisukī). Also, the name of the comedy duo Yoiko is written "よゐこ" (yowiko).
