Google Japan Search Bookmarklet

I’ve put up one of these before, but this time I edited it so that by default it only searches Japanese pages. This should be the extra little environmental nudge you need to get more Japanese into your web life.

Source Code:
javascript:(function(){var w=window,d=w.document,s="";;if(d.selection){s=d.selection.createRange().text}else if (d.getSelection){s=d.getSelection()}else if(w.getSelection){s=window.getSelection()} (""+encodeURIComponent(s) +"&hl=ja&prmd=ivns&source=lnt&tbs=lr:lang_1ja&lr=lang_ja","_blank")})()

    And where does one copy paste that code for it to do the job it was made for?

      Here’s how this works in Google Chrome:

      Click and drag the link onto the bookmarks bar.(Only the link is dragged. Do not select it first.)
      Select text (probably Japanese) on a web page.
      Click on the new bookmark.
      You get a search results page based on that term.

      The code takes the selected text, turns it into a search query, and sends you to Google for the results, filtered so that it’s only in Japanese.

      I’m guessing something similar works in other browsers… I hope that works out for you.
