"party:パーティー",how to type "ー" in the computer

  • For all of the Japanese input tools I can think of, just a "-" produces the "ー", but I would think that'd be the first thing to try, so maybe you're using some tool I'm not aware of. What tool are you using to input Japanese? Commented Aug 27, 2014 at 4:03

  • You should be able to type pa-thi- to get パーティー.
