"Quick Brown Fox" for Japanese?

Is there a commonly-known sentence in Japanese that uses each kana (including the だくてん and はんだくてん versions), similar to the one for English "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."?

I think it might be fun for writing practice, rather than just copying the kana charts like I've been doing....!

Maybe iroha would work for you:

いろはにほへと
ちりぬるを
わかよたれそ
つねならむ
うゐのおくやま
けふこえて
あさきゆめみし
ゑひもせす

Some other ones can be found here . The technical term they are called are pangrams, the katakana spelling is パングラム if you want to google them to find Japanese websites containing poems similar to Iroha and dedicated to making such.
