how to type these: ヶ,々? directly on keyboard.

  • You can probably get 々 by typing "noma" into your IME. – Will Kunkel Aug 1 '16 at 17:14

On Windows 7 it's 'lke' for ヶ and 'onaji' for 々.

All the possible small kana can be typed by prefacing them with "l".

  • "x" is also an alternative to "l". xtu = っ – Leo Aug 2 '16 at 2:46
  • "x" is more widely supported across OSes than "l" AFAIK. "くりかえし" also works for "々" – cypher Aug 5 '16 at 4:48

Usually I just type the word that it is in.

For example:

ひとびと -> 人々
さまざま -> 様々
さんかげつ -> 三ヶ月

々 repeats the previous kanji, often with rendaku. By itself it can be spelled "noma" because it looks like the katakana ノマ smashed together.

ヶ may look like the katakana ケ, but it is not. I usually see it in the pattern (number)ヶ月, where it is pronounced か, confusingly enough. The most efficient way I know to type it by itself is to first do かげつ -> ヶ月 then hit backspace. Edit: Ciaran's suggestion of typing lowercase L then "ke" works on Google IME, nice.
