       chasen ‐ Japanese Morphological Analysis System


       chasen [options] file


       chasen  is  a  morphological  analysis  system.  It can segment and tokenize Japanese text
       string,  and  can  output  with  many  additional  information  (pronunciation,   semantic
       information, and others).
