日本語資源 - Nihongoresources.com
Fixing the search DB issues The api.nihongoresources.com was having some database issues, which have hopefully been addressed. If you can't search, or obvious searches that should have results don't, please let me know (ideally, tweet at me, otherwise, contact me via the contact form).

The link section

Featured link

Kanji Networks; etymology of kanji - This site operates an etymological database for kanji, showing their origin and relations to other kanji. The site is simplistic at the moment (I would recommend picking one of the links on the main page instead of searching, as searching leads to a rather hard to read page), but the information is quite interesting. A bit like the relational and etymological link network made for Chinese characters a while ago by Rick Harbaugh)

 

The NR wiki

There is a (perhaps temporary, perhaps permanent) Nihongoresources resource wiki online at wiki.nihongoresources.com, right now for the purpose of getting kanji decomposition data 'accredited' if you will: getting the sign of approval from people who are willing to look a few of them over, collectively going through the whole list, although of course if you do only a handful and 100 other people do too, we'll be done in a few days (is that realistic? no. but that's okay, it doesn't *need* to be done in a few days).

 

My own link

In addition to nihongoresources I also run my personal website on the 'pomax' subdomain. This will at times also contain news relevant to nihongoresources (particularly when I'm working on NR projects), as well as things less related to Japanese but possibly still interesting.
