Google Japanese Input is an input method published by Google for the entry of Japanese text on a computer. Since its dictionaries are generated automatically from the Internet, it is much easier to type personal names, Internet slang, neologisms and related terms.

To install Google Japanese Input, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install googlejapaneseinput

To upgrade Google Japanese Input, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
