It should be possible to specify the footnote's group parameter as an option in the requested template. This new template would help to un-clutter articles which use many instances of the nihongo-template.

Tell me what you think. I made it require the 1st (English) parameter but I could also make it function like the original template when there is no English parameter. By default there is no reference group so the footnotes are called by the basic tag but the group parameter defines a group so that they can be called separate from the rest of the references using "''group''" .
