Here is discussed how to build up ontology with many properties from Japanese Wikipedia. The ontology includes is-a relationship (rdfs:subClassOf), class-instance relationship (rdf:type) and synonym relation (skos:altLabel) moreover it includes property relations and types. Property relations are triples, property domain (rdfs:domain) and property range (rdfs:range). Property types are object (owl:ObjectProperty), data (owl:DatatypeProperty), symmetric (owl:SymmetricProperty), transitive (owl:TransitiveProperty), functional (owl:FunctionalProperty) and inverse functional (owl:InverseFunctionalProperty).
