SimpleJA attempts to recreate the vintage "cross-positioned" legends which were common on many vintage Japanese keyboards.
Many hours of research were conducted to create legends that are as genuine to the originals as possible.
Historically used legends from vintage boards were implemented wherever possible; those that did not exist were crafted carefully to match the others.
The basic white/beige color scheme was chosen as a neutral colorway that matches both the vintage style of the keyset as well as newer sleek keyboards.
The modifier keys were kept all-Japanese for a uniform look.
Enough keys to fill most form factors below TKL size.
