How do I type letters like ī into normal letters?

I'm translating Japanese color terms and have a question about letters such as ī

Would I type them as "ii" or something else? Notepad, the thing I use to save them in, doesn't support unicode.

    ā = aa (sounds like ah)

    ī = ii (sounds like ee in eek)

    ū = uu (sounds like oo in boo)

    ē = ee (sound like eh)

    ō = oo or ou (sounds like oh)

    You'd type them as whatever the convention is to type Japanese characters with a Latin alphabet.
