The main feature of this website was inspired by a series of webbrowser
extenions called Rikaikun
(Google Chrome), Rikaichan
(Mozilla Firefox, obsolete) and Rikaichamp
(Mozilla Firefox, replacement of Rikaichan). You can use these extension to
benefit from a quick-access Japanese dictionary working on any website!
If you prefer reading news directly on NHK News Web Easy, or regularly
consult other website with furigana, install Furigana
toggle (either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) to hide them by default!
You will be able to display them simply by hovering the kanji with your cursor.
Alternatively, you can also go on Kanji Signs 4 U to study
Japanese encountered on day-to-day signs.
