In the original Japanese documents written before 1946 or so, the writing system is slightly different from today. The main differences are:

  • old kanji forms
  • some old kana characters that since fell in disuse
  • a greater number of differences between kana usage and pronunciation

Here are some common words whose writing has changed:

old new meaning
寫眞 写真 photography
光學 光学 optics
商會 商会 trading company
