Virtual keyboard

Anyone has a tip on a good website? I currently use two virtual keyboard sites, one for kanji and one for hiragana/katakana. I would like one where I can type in English and get the correct Japanese characters in all three scripts.

For getting to type Japanese on desktop, I used this guide. Here are more instructions how to type on many devices and systems. 

If you don't want to install anything, here are some virtual keyboards: Lexilogos, Branah or this one - it uses the romaji input to give you kana and kanji choices. 

And last but not least, if you use Chrome, you can add this extension to add virtual keyboard to it. 

I've tried all of the methods above, so far the first method with installing is the fastest and most handy one. 楽しんでください!^.^


Thanks, Mya! Once again you prove to be a good ally in my Japanese-learning endeavors!




A small question: I'm on a Discord server for language practice and we have a few people speaking and practicing Japanese here ;) Would you be interested in joining? Me and others agree, that we would like to invite you ^.^

If you'd say "はい" to this, are you already on Discord? Could you post me your nick and ID here (or after you make an account if you don't have one), so I can add you, we will delete the posts here with it after that ;))


It is very flattering to be invited to join you on Discord, but I'm afraid I have to decline your offer. While I do like learning Japanese and am glad for what I have learned, I don't feel motivated enough to do so. At this point I even let some lessons go down from gold and only focus on the lessons I consider more fun.

I do thank you for considering me though and should my mind change on the matter I will somehow contact you and let you know. I hope I didn't disappoint you too much now but I feel I should have better motivation so that I don't let you down further down the road instead.

Happy Easter! :)
