Japanese memorization.

I'm moving to Japan for a job in about a month, and I figured I should probably try learning the language. However, I'm having difficulty memorizing Hiragana and Katakana characters. I've managed to memorize a few, but I can't seem to memorize the rest. Does anyone have any suggestions/hints/tips for memorizing the characters as quick as possible? I don't really have time to take a class (and there probably aren't any classes where I am currently, anyway), so I have to do this on my own for now. Specifically, I've been able to memorize the following Hirgana characters: a, i, u, o, ku, tsu, n, shi, no, ri, yu, pe, and to. As for Katakana: a, i, u, e, o, ka, ki, gi, ku, ko, su, ro, da, tsu (but I often confuse it with shi, and shi with tsu), shi, ha, so (again, often I confuse it with n, and n with so), ho, pe, mu, ma, mi, re, ru, ya, yu, and to. I've tried attempting to write them on paper, in hopes that it'd help me memorize them, but I can't for the life of me actually write them.

Would appreciate any help.
