Finding official websites of former Japanese schools[編集]

I found the archived websites of the old Monbusho at*/

Do these pages have the URLs of the former Japanese schools:

  • ブレーメン国際日本学園 (Germany)
  • 英国四天王寺学園 (UK)

I ask this because MEXT (the successor of the old Monbusho) has listed URLs of Japanese schools in pages such as this one:

As for this one:

  • サウスクイーンズランドアカデミー (Australia)

From*/ I found the page for South Queensland Academy - did it have a boarding high school program for Japanese expatriate students? What was its relationship to any Australian schools? Was it established in 1992?

I was able to start en:South queensland Academy but I still don't know info about the Bremen and Shittenou schools. WhisperToMe会話) 2015年4月7日 (火) 14:09 (UTC)


I'm Wikipedian in Residence at en:ORCID and a Japanese friend, who is not a Wikipedian, is doing ORCID outreach work there, which will benefit Wikipedia, as explained at en:WP:ORCID. Your Template:Normdaten currently relies on a link to the English-language article on ORCID. Could somebody assist by translating that article into Japanese, and placing it on this Wikipedia, please? A start was made at 利用者:Athomeinkobe/ORCID, should you wish to develop that. Pigsonthewing会話) 2015年3月4日 (水) 05:56 (UTC)

Being a resource ourselves, I agree that bibliographic topics should be one our focus areas, and yet those are where the Japanese Wikipedia is seriously lacking. I wrote an article on authority control the other day, and I'm somewhat familiar with the area -- at least I already know what ORCID is and what it's for. I have too much stuff on my hands right now so it could take a week or two before I get to it, but I will definitely keep in mind that that topic needs an article. --朝彦会話) 2015年3月4日 (水) 06:28 (UTC)
Thank you. Pigsonthewing会話) 2015年3月4日 (水) 08:39 (UTC)
I've just translated into Japanese. Please see ORCID.--K-iczn会話) 2015年3月4日 (水) 12:59 (UTC)

Are these hoshuko a part of the same organization as the nihonjin gakko?[編集]

I learned about the following hoshuko:

Are these hoshuko the same organization as the nihonjin gakko, or are they separate organizations?

I ask because these hoshuko meet in the respective nihonjin gakko buildings. I wonder if the hoshuko are actually a part of the nihonjin gakko, or if they are separate but agree to share facilities.

Thanks WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月7日 (土) 09:41 (UTC)

Amsterdam schools appear to be different entities despite the shared location with no mention of the other in either web sites. Rotterdam hoshuko's location says that they are "located within the nihonjin gakko". Madrid's hoshuko says that they "merged" with the nihonjin gakko in 1996. Barcelona hoshuko says that they hold their classes where the classrooms are on loan from the nihonjin gakko. --朝彦会話) 2015年3月17日 (火) 01:10 (UTC)
Thanks for the info! What pages say those things? I want to cite that information on the English and Spanish Wikipedias. WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月22日 (日) 14:35 (UTC)

Can this be transferred to the Commons?[編集]

I found ファイル:Kobe chinese school.jpg and would like to use it in en:Kobe Chinese School. Can it be transferred to the Wikimedia Commons? WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月8日 (日) 10:23 (UTC)

I confirmed that it's eligible for license migration. You may transfer it to Commons under GFDL/CC-BY-SA 3.0. --朝彦会話) 2015年3月17日 (火) 01:15 (UTC)
Thank you! Now on Commons at Commons:File:Kobe chinese school.jpg WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月25日 (水) 17:39 (UTC)

I would also like to transfer ファイル:Denko1.jpg (of Den Enchofu High School) but I see a notice in red. What is the notice talking about? WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月28日 (土) 07:53 (UTC)

Quick stub request: Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses pour la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile[編集]

Would anyone be interested in starting an article on the Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses pour la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile? It is the French air accident investigation agency. I found out that two Japanese persons were on board ジャーマンウイングス9525便墜落事故, and the BEA is going to investigate the crash WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月25日 (水) 03:39 (UTC)

Question about 究めろ!ポケモンB・W (Be a Master! Pokemon B & W)[編集]

Does anyone know where one can find secondary sources about "究めろ!ポケモンB・W" (en:Be a Master! Pokemon B & W). Do any sources on Google Books mention "究めろ!ポケモンB・W"? I ask because there is an AFD: en:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Be a Master! Pokemon B & W. Thanks, WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月25日 (水) 12:12 (UTC)

There is also an "Articles for deletion" discussion about ポケットモンスター PiPiPi★アドベンチャー (en:Magical Pokémon Journey) here: en:Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Magical_Pokémon_Journey - If anyone knows of any Japanese reliable sources about this series it would be great! WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月25日 (水) 15:55 (UTC)

As I commented on the AFD, I found it extremely difficult to believe that 究めろ!ポケモンB・W is a notable work. For the other one (PiPiPi), my search only turned up the book already covered in the AFD (J.Thompson), and other than that, I see only tweets, forum posts, personal blogs, and other nonreliable sources. --朝彦会話) 2015年3月25日 (水) 18:54 (UTC)
Ah, that's too bad. I'm checking with the French to see if they know of any sources that cover the PiPiPi work, since the book was also published in France. I wonder what the names of the major Japanese comics review magazines (discussing comics and posting their opinions) are? If en:Newtype (月刊ニュータイプ) is one of them, they would have articles about them, but I don't know if they would be online. WhisperToMe会話) 2015年3月25日 (水) 19:01 (UTC)

Editors familiar with the history of the Ryukyu Islands needed in this English Wikipedia RFC[編集]

I notice two editors fighting over whether certain "flags of the Ryukyu Islands" are historically accurate in en:Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Japan#RfC: Flag of Ryukyu. I would like to have editor input from Japanese persons who can look at the sources presented and determine whether they are historically accurate.

Thank you WhisperToMe会話) 2015年4月9日 (木) 03:42 (UTC)
