I'm currently charting the vocals in RADWIMPS - Oshakashama. The song is entirely in Japanese. I have the Romanized lyrics for the song, but the lyric hyphenator website that I usually use only supports English words. Are there any easier ways to hyphenate the lyrics for Japanese songs, or will I have to do it all manually?

I always do them manually. It's really easy to separate Japanese syllables - especially since you have them romanized already.

For example:

"yume janai are mo kore mo"

"yu-me  ja-na-i  a-re  mo  ko-re  mo"
