Transliteration system: Hepburn

The Hepburn romanization system is named after James Curtis Hepburn, who used it to transcribe the sounds of the Japanese language into the Latin alphabet in the third edition of his Japanese-English dictionary, published in 1887. The system was originally proposed by the Society for the Romanization of the Japanese Alphabet in 1885.
