Ver. 2.0


Studing Japanese? advanced or beginner level? Curious? Like the writting? Anime fan? any option is valid for having the date in Japanese on your desktop!

DiasJ is a program that displays:

  • the name of the day (Wednesday, Thursday...)
  • how the month and the day is read in Japanese with its kanji and furigana

So, if you are learning, this is your best option. But wait! If you're advanced in this date-knowledge-thing, you can hide the furigana or choose the "minimalistic" version. In this way, everyone enjoys!

Is fairly simple: start up, place the program where you want. Right Click | opciones (options) to change the font's color and size to customize it as you like.


  • Showing furigana
  • Minimalistic mode
  • Showing no furigana
  • Options window

  • Create a shortcut for it (right click on the program's icon, send to | desktop).
  • Place that shortcut in this folder (Windows 7 and Vista): C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
