NO NO NO there is no such thing as "uppercase" and "lowercase" Kana!!!

If you seen two different sizes (for ***some*** of the characters)  
this is because the smaller characters have a special function: they  
are vowels which will change the vowel part of a syllable. For  
example, you have a syllable "chi" if you add a small "a" it will  
become "cha" (if you add a big "a" you will have two syllables "chi-a").

The only writing systems having upper and lower case are: Latin (+  
variants: Gothic, Gaelic), Cyrillic, Greek, Armenian and old church  
Georgian (khutsuri).
