Help:Installing Japanese character sets

Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 include native OS support for displaying Japanese text by default. To input Japanese on a non-Japanese version of the OS, however, the Japanese input method editor must be enabled from the Region and Language (Windows 7 and 8) or Regional and Language Options (Vista) section of the Control Panel.

A Windows XP CD-ROM is needed to install support for East Asian languages. (Non-East Asian versions of Windows only, as East Asian versions have native Japanese support.)

Your system should offer to download Asian fonts by default while viewing pages in those languages, provided that you are using Internet Explorer.

Otherwise, update your system manually with the language support packs.

Please note that the package version may be different. Alternatively, this can be easily accomplished by installing from the ports tree:

Most modern operating systems use Unicode to display Japanese characters. Many fonts have been developed to display Japanese Unicode characters, and many of them are available for downloading over the Internet.
