Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)

Usage

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

Syntax
Code {{Nihongo|English|kanji/kana|rōmaji|extra|extra2}}
Gives English (kanji/kana rōmaji?, extra) extra2
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/kana. Required. The word in Japanese kanji and/or kana, the logographic writing system.
  • rōmaji. Optional. The word in Japanese rōmaji, 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).
