Type each word’s rōmaji equivalent. Hiragana will appear as you type.
- For っ (small ‘tsu’), repeat the consonant that follows it (e.g. ‘kko’ in ‘gakkou’).
- For ん, type ‘nn’, although the second ‘n’ can be omitted for all words except those with な, に, ぬ, ね, or の following the ん (e.g. おんな).
This system is common for typing Japanese on a western keyboard.
