{{#invoke:Shortcut|main}} {{#invoke:Hatnote|hatnote}} This help page will help you install Japanese character fonts so that your computer will display Japanese characters properly on the Internet in your web browser. All modern operating systems and web browsers support Japanese characters, and they are used in many different articles throughout Wikipedia. Some computers with English or other Western operating systems do not show Japanese characters by default, but most require only a minimal amount of work to install or activate the capability.

If you came here by clicking the ? near some Japanese characters, and are interested in how Japanese is displayed on Wikipedia, see ยง Note about displaying Japanese on Wikipedia at the end of this page.
