In Windows you have to have the Windows disc still, or find the files yourself which is really..difficult.

Go to:

1. Control Panel
2. Date, Time and Language
3. Regional and Language options
4. Languages (tab at top)
5. Select the box for east Asian languages with the Windows disc in and they will install.

Those are specifically for XP although more than likely it is the same in Vista in Seven.

Edit: Had to make sure.

Then, you have to enable it for the keyboards.

1. Control Panel
2. Date, Time and Language
3. Regional and Language options
4. Languages (tab at top)
5. Click the Details button.
6. Add the language you want.

Well I just hope our assumption you're using Windows is correct. Hur-hur.

In Vista and Seven it's already installed, apparently.


After you've installed or if you already have the EAL support component:
Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages > Details > Add > Japanese

Made redundant by Ctep's edit.
Check the language bar options while you're at it, I find it useful to see what I'm on. Alt+Shift is the hotkey combo to switch input language.

The keyboard layout will presumably default to Microsoft IME Standard 2002 ver 8.1. I do believe you'd need a Japanese keyboard though so it's a vain action unless you have or can get one, or can perhaps find a custom layout for whatever keyboard you are using.

Anyone with a Japanese or unicode font will be able to.

OS language? (Only feature I wish Windows had that Apple has)
I have Business and I can enable the keyboard for other languages.

To the OP, you can find the language pack still on Microsoft's website if you don't have the CS and you're using XP.

Language support, not Windows Explorer UI language.
