Help needed.[編集]

Hello everyone. I would like to write an article about Keita Kaneto. While looking for information, I found some results. Can someone tell me what results are that? Is this a Japanese championships or something like that? If it is the championships, then in what event they are? Diving has more than one event. Thanks in advance, Żyrafał会話) 2018年1月17日 (水) 14:19 (UTC)

The title of this list is "History of JAPAN SWIM Winners : Men - Diving".
  • Keita Kaneto(Nihon University)has won 4 times from 1986 (62) to 1989 (65).
  • Keita Kaneto(Mikihouse) has won 2 times at 1991 (67) and 1995 (71). --StrangeMist (a.k.a StrangeSnow / Talk) 2018年1月17日 (水) 16:38 (UTC)

Suggest stub translation of en:Jūrō Oka (founder of modern Japanese whaling)[編集]

Black-and-white photo of a Japanese man
Jūrō Oka (27 July 1870 – 8 January 1923)

Years ago I wrote en:Jūrō Oka on English Wikipedia, and I'm still surprised there is no equivalent article on Japanese Wikipedia, since Oka is basically the guy who modernized whaling in Japan. Could someone take just 5-10 minutes and create a translated stub, even if just a couple sentences long with a couple citations from English, in hopes that the stub would be expanded here in Japanese? I'm sure there are many interesting things written about him in Japanese, so maybe creating a stub will attract more content? MatthewVanitas会話) 2018年1月28日 (日) 19:10 (UTC)

For JAwiki expatriate users in Southern China: Meetup/Hong Kong/115[編集]

Any JAwiki users who are Japanese expatriates in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Macau, Guangzhou, Zhuhai, and other southern Chinese cities are welcome to join the next Hong Kong meetup on February 24, 2018. More details here: meta:Meetup/Hong Kong/115

User:ネイ speaks Japanese and he will be happy to assist Japanese expats who come to the meetups :)

(If you want, ネイ, please translate this into Japanese!)

Thanks :) Do you expect expatriates to come to Hong Kong directly, or will everyone gather at somewhere like Shenzhen and then cross the border together?--ネイ会話) 2018年2月10日 (土) 03:32 (UTC)

(以下、日本語の説明)2018年2月24日に香港でMeetupが行われます。香港のイベントなので英語版と中国語版が主体になりますが、日本語話者でも対応できますので、是非ご参加ください。なお、WhisperToMe氏は香港、深セン、マカオ、広州、珠海など主に中国南部在住の方に呼びかけていますが、当然ながら誰でもご参加になれます。ご質問はここで書くか、利用者‐会話:ネイまでお越しください。--ネイ会話) 2018年2月10日 (土) 03:32 (UTC)

Thanks for the translation! As for expatriates, I guess the arrangement is up to them. There are many border crossing points possible (land routes through Shenzhen, the China Rail train from Guangzhou to Kowloon, and sea routes by ferry). If a group of Japanese expats in Shenzhen want to go together they can do that :)
All expats from Macau and Zhuhai should take the ferry to Kowloon. IMO Japanese expats in Shekou (in Shenzhen) may want to take the ferry while those in Futian (in Shenzhen) may want to go to Futian Checkpoint and connect to the MTR there. Those in Guangzhou may want to take the China Rail Guangzhou to Kowloon train. Those in southern Guangzhou may wish to to take the ferry.

Help in subject[編集]

On the Dutch wikipedia we would like an article for a Japanese scientist nl:Shinsaku Kimoto. Do you have more information about this gentleman in Japanese sources, for example birth date, date of death, or professional information? Thank you for helping. VanBuren会話) 2018年2月19日 (月) 08:46 (UTC)

This person is 木元新作, born in 1933 (See Kinokuniya Web Store). Seems there is no article in Japanese Wikipedia yet. There is an unreliable source saying he died in 2009, but I have not found a reliable one to confirm yet. Not an expert in this field so unfortunately this is the best I could do.--ネイ会話) 2018年2月19日 (月) 10:47 (UTC)
Thank you for now. He is very well known in his field of expertise. Friendly request to possibly place this question on your biology (生物学) discussion page or other appropriate page? Would be very much appreciated!. --VanBuren会話) 2018年2月19日 (月) 11:43 (UTC)
In his Japanese name 木元新作, 木元 stands for Kimoto and 新作 for Shinsaku.
He was born in 1933. He completed the doctoral program without a doctoral degree at Graduate School of Agriculture, Kyushu University. Professor emeritus at Kurume University. Doctor of Agriculture. (1933年生れ。九州大学大学院農学研究科博士課程中退。久留米大学名誉教授。農学博士[1])
He worked at Biological Laboratory, School of Medicine, Kurume University.(久留米大学医学部進学課程生物学教室[2])
He appears to be an alumnus at Fukuoka Prefectural Kokura High School (his name is on a donation list.[3]) and might have died in Feb. 2009.(九州の木元新作君が平成21年2月に亡くなりました。according to a source claiming as Kokura High School Alumni Association without any verifiability [4])
The amount of information is rather small but I hope this will help you anyway.--Ryota7906会話) 2018年2月19日 (月) 11:51 (UTC)
Much appreciated! We will take it further. --VanBuren会話) 2018年2月19日 (月) 13:33 (UTC)

Permission for an anime poster[編集]

Dear editors! I expanded the Hungarian article about hu:Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale, which is now a good article. The only problem is that it doesn't contain any picture, because we cannot use any non-free imagine without permission. I tried to ask permission from Anime Limited and Aniplex, but I didn't get any answer, probably because I cannot reach the right person. Therefore, I'd like to ask help from someone, who would help me to ask permission for the film's poster in Japanese; I would be very grateful. Just in case, please ping me if you answer.
