How do I type Japanese Hiragana on my Macbook Pro? Also, how is it possible with a english keyboard? I've heard people talk about it, but I don't know how it actually works! It'd be interested to know, though.
First you have to enable the Japanese keyboards in the Input Sources tab of your Language & Text System Pref. You then type kana phonetically, e. g. »sa« will give you さ. The system will then also automatically propose kanji when it sees fit. But you still need to pick the right one since Japanese has countless homophones, e. g. いる could be »to be« or »to need«.
