This talk gives an introduction to searching Japanese text and an overview of the new Japanese search features available out-of-the-box in Lucene and Solr.
Atilika developed a new Japanese morphological analyzer (Kuromoji) in 2010 when they couldn't find any easy-to-use, high-quality morphological analyzer in Java that was good for both search and other Japanese NLP tasks. Kuromoji was built with the goal of donating it to the Apache Software Foundation in order to make Japanese work well for both Lucene and Solr, and is now a standard part of these software packages.
