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.

For more details on when to use this template, see Wikipedia:Manual of Style (Japan-related articles).
Syntax
Without lead=yes With lead=yes
English (kanji/kana rōmaji?, extra) extra2 English (Japanese: kanji/kana Hepburn: 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 as written in Japanese (kanji, kana, Roman letters, and possibly other marks).
  • rōmaji. Optional. Transliteration of the Japanese word, using Hepburn Romanization.
  • lead=yes. Optional. This should be used for the first instance of Japanese, usually in the lead. It gives the reader an idea what kind of non-English writing they are viewing.
  • extra. Optional. Can be used to add a gloss (particularly if there is no English form). 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).
