Abstract To provide a Japanese input system which reduces the influence of erroneous conversion caused by adding a new part of speech by enabling the definition of the new part of speech even without defining part-of-speech information by a user. This Japanese input system has a part-of-speech information storage part 106, a part-of-speech reading means 102, a connection information discriminating means 104 for retrieving the connection information of the part of speech read out by the part-of-speech reading means from the part-of-speech information storage part and discriminating the connection between the read part of speech and the part of speech to be connected and a conversion engine 100 for controlling respective parts including the part-of-speech information storage part, the part-of-speech reading means and the connection information discriminating means, and performing KANA/KANJI conversion on the basis of the discriminated result of the connection information discriminating means.
