    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    It certainly has support for Japanese characters. I don't know if you need X-Windows support for the keyboard, or if there is some other input means that you can use with OOo. Since I neither know nor use Japanese I cannot say for sure what exactly you need to do, but I would think it likely that you can.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    For the sake of information, I too know that it supports Japanese characters. My attempts to get OpenOffice working with uim never succeeded, so I'm not sure exactly how to actually get Japanese characters to display. I never tried actually setting my keyboard to a Japanese layout, but maybe that is the next place to start?

    UIM and Abiword or GIMP work no problem. But Open Office remains a bit of a mystery.
