Use of new characters and old characters
JapanKnowledge has an identification system of the old kanji and kanji variants. Therefore, you will be able to search by the old kanji or new kanji. The standard of the identification of the new and old kanji is based on the "Joyo-kanji jitaihyo" (guide to kanji characters and their readings, announced officially by the Japanese Ministry of Education) and "Jinmei-kanji jitaihyo" (list of kanji that can legally be used in registered personal names in Japan).
About Machine Dependent Characters
Using machine dependent characters or extended kanjis, may cause garbled characters, and troubles in searching. Please do not use machine dependent characters and extended kanjis.
