Speaking about Japanese fonts, it is first of all worthy to name traditional Japanese scripts. They are called Hiragana and Katakana. Besides, Chinese characters, as well as Latin alphabet called Romaji, are also used in the modern Japanese language. Basically, if you need to display traditional Japanese characters, it is necessary to look for a Japanese font with the support of Hiragana and Katakana character sets. You can do this easily at Fonts2u by selecting the relevant option in the character map drop-down list in the extended search tool.
To get familiar with traditional Japanese fonts, have a look at the CaslonRoman or Un Graphic fonts, both supporting Japanese symbols, as well as Latin letters. However, some typefaces, presented in the Japanese font category at Fonts2u are designed just to mimic the style of traditional Japanese glyphs. For example, in Kato font all the Latin letters are drawn in a Japanese manner with bended stems and wide bows. Text printed with such font will still be readable for English speaking people; however, it will also recreate the unique and original appearance of the traditional Japanese lettering.
