Launched: 9/12/2006
Ended Operation in 2008 featured a new Japanese word every day with definition, romanization, and an interactive sentence example. In 2008, another developer came along and made me an offer I couldn't refuse to purchase the domain name. The original site still remains online at although it is no longer updated.

The site was my first adventure in generating dynamic JavaScript with PHP. The interactive sentence examples allow users to click words written in kanji characters to reveal their easier to learn kana representations. The sentence is written in a simple syntax to encode both representations. PHP code parses this simple syntax and "automagically" generates the HTML and JavaScript necessary for it all to work.

The site featured a dynamically generated image of the word, displayed in a homemade handwritten font called Mikachan.
