Nihongo menu for CharInsert[edit]

If anyone else is using the CharInsert tool to insert macron characters, I have created a custom menu that displays a line something like this.

Nihongo {{Nihongo|}} {{Nihongo2|}} ā ī ū ē ō Ā Ī Ū Ē Ō

You can click any of the templates or characters to insert them into an article. To add this to your CharInsert menus, copy the following four lines to your "common.js" file.

// Add custom Nihongo menu to CharInsert tool -- See Help:CharInsert
window.charinsertCustom = {
 'Nihongo': '{\{Nihongo|+}} {\{Nihongo2|+}} ā ī ū ē ō  Ā Ī Ū Ē Ō'
};

To briefly explain the above

  • CharInsert is a tool that displays characters that are hard to enter from the keyboard. You can enable it by checking the Preferences → Gadgets → Editing → CharInsert check box. It will appear just above the Edit summary box when you are editing a page.
  • "common.js" is your personal Javascript file. If you don't have one yet, I believe you can create it by clicking Special:MyPage/common.js. What this code does is to add the custom menu to the set of menus in CharInsert. You can display the new menu by selecting "Nihongo" from the CharInsert menus.

There are more details and examples for customizing CharInsert at a new help file, at Help:CharInsert. – Margin1522 (talk) 15:46, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Japanese name of the North Korea-aligned high school in Tokyo[edit]

I heard there was the "Korean Junior High and High School" in Tokyo that is North Korea-aligned. What is its Japanese name?

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 10:20, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

There are a number of Korean schools in Tokyo. I don't know which if any are North Korea-aligned, but there is a list at ja:朝鮮学校#関東. – Margin1522 (talk) 22:28, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for posting this! There are certainly North Korean-aligned ones, and for a time there were more of them than South Korean-aligned ones. That may have changed recently but I'm not sure WhisperToMe (talk) 15:07, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Draft:Kozo Kanatani[edit]

Dear Japan experts: This old AfC submission will soon be deleted as a stale draft. There are some concert reviews which may indicate that the subject is notable, but they are in Japanese and I can't tell how extensive or reliable they are. Should this page be kept and improved?—Anne Delong (talk) 04:18, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Merger discussion for Live at Budokan: Black Night[edit]

(Posted here because the band is under this Wikiproject's music taskforce.)

Merge-arrows.svg

Live at Budokan: Black Night, has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. It has gone 15 days (half its discussion period) with no discussion, and while discussion is not required to merge, I thought people may not have realized it was happening, so I thought I'd notify relevant pages (related article talk pages; relevant Wikiprojects/taskforces) in the interest of drumming up discussion. Thank you. Purplewowies (talk) 18:39, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Readings of 「八ヶ夕」 and 「六ヶ跡」?[edit]

Can anyone help me with the proper readings of 「八ヶ夕」 and 「六ヶ跡」? They're from the names of series of prints by Utagawa Toyoharu. Curly Turkey ¡gobble! 00:23, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

I don't get a single google hit for either one of those. You're sure they're correct? --Cckerberos (talk) 00:54, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
