Here's a better challenge: Type five unique open parenthesis signs, without looking up their key sequences or codepoints.
Asa meshi mae (and if you know what that means -- the White Queen does -- you also know why this is trivial):
Took 10 seconds, and that long only because I missed and typed the closing paren several times (they come in pairs rather than all the open first then the close, a glissando wouldn't work). Even if you nuke the compats and the angle brackets that's still 5 without hardly trying.
This, friends, is why you should learn Japanese. ;-)
