This is an excellent translation, which is the most widely used by Japanese speaking Evangelicals, and very helpful to the missionary community. The option to compare this translation with the likewise excellent Shinkyodoyaku ("Inter-confessional" translation produced by mainline and Catholic collaboration) is also a blessing. Thank you for offering both texts on the Accordance platform! I have seen Japanese come to Christ for which this tool has played a part!

Furigana (kanji readings) would indeed be helpful, especially if they could be displayed the normal Japanese way (i.e., as superscript over the tops of the kanji in question). Another way in the meantime would be to link the words with a dictionary in the manner that already exists for Hebrew and Greek within English texts. Although Japanese Bible scholars and computational linguists are a bit rare, they can be found.

If you could add more Japanese texts in the future, I would recommend Kogoyaku (still popular since the 1950s), Bungotai (classical Japanese and without copyright in the public domain), and the Living Bible.

Now please also get more Korean texts, for which there is a larger market, and Strong's numbering for those and Chinese.

I am very thankful for this Japanese Bible on Accordance. I would have benefited a lot more if the furigana were available so I can read the kanji. Also, I agree with Nakamura-san that a compare button with the English text and so on would be available. Here's hoping!

This module is specifically helpful for those who use Japanese Bibles like me. What is useful is that you can search words in Japanese and also copy and paste the text.
What is not good though, is that it does not contain any footnotes that are available in the paper print. In addition, the words are not highlighted when putting cursor in a text (no definition of any word available), and clicking "compare" button does not show any highlight. I expected these functions to be possible, so it was a disappointment.
Overall, it at least serves a basic function of searching and copying/pasting, hence three stars. Hope this will improve in the updated version.

Great to see a Japanese version bible enlisted. I already have purchaed and installed on my Mac and iPhone/iPad, and it works beautifully. The translation is the third revision of Shinkaiyaku, which is the newer version.
