How to type Japanese with it

Okay!! Seems like you are ready to type Japanese now!!

Here is the directions to change language on your keyboard.

Let’s try to type something!!


First, please click somewhere you can write words. In this directions, we click on the top left box. However, your language is still English or whatever you had as you could see “ENG” at bottom right corner.


Actually you can click the “ENG” to change language, you would see “A” or “あ” appears. However, I highly recommend you to remember the shortcut key “alt + shift” to change it.

If your language is still “A”…


Please change it to “.” Remember, the shortcut key is “alt + `
