Simple Search 簡易検索 ("Top" tag)

  • Input your keywords separated by space(s). Spaces are interpreted as "AND" 
  • Inputting a person's name as a keyword, it searches both "author" and "people" described in articles.
  • If you need to search "author" and people described in articles separately, use the advanced search page 詳細検索.
  • Use the most well known name as your keyword if a person is associated with many different names/aliases. Example: if you search 森鴎外, it returns both 森鴎外 and 森林太郎. However, if you search by a keyword 森林太郎, it only returns 森林太郎 but NOT 森鴎外.

Searching images/illustrations in articles

  • Click 図版を検索する to look for images, illustrations, photos.

Searching for 当て字
