Usage

Syntax
Code {{Nihongo|English|Kanji|Rōmaji|extra|extra2}}
Gives English (Kanji Rōmaji?, extra) extra2

This template marks the Kanji segment as being in Japanese Kanji, which helps user agents (web browsers and so on) to display it correctly. It also applies the t_nihongo_kanji CSS class.

Parameters
  • English. Optional. The word as translated into English. Note that this will sometimes be the actual Japanese word due to it being adopted into English.
  • Kanji. Required. The word in Japanese kanji and/or kana, the logographic writing system.
  • Romaji. Optional. The word in Japanese Romaji, the Romanized syllabic writing system used for foreign words. Also known as a "transliteration".
  • extra. Optional. Can also be expressed as a named parameter, extra=
  • extra2. Optional. Can also be expressed as a named parameter, extra2=. It is only useful in ";" definitions (extra2 will be displayed without bold, whereas text following the template will get the bold).

Examples

Regular use:

Code {{Nihongo|English|英語|eigo}}
Gives English (英語 eigo?)

Without English:

Code {{Nihongo||英語|eigo}}
Gives eigo (英語?)

With extra2:

Code

; {{Nihongo||虚無僧|komusō|extra2="Priest of nothingness"}}
: Mendicant priest of the Fuke sect of Zen Buddhism.
