Ever fancying of having some cool Japanese fonts instead of using the boring default system Japanese fonts? Well, you are in the right place. Here I found another 5 unique Japanese fonts that is free for download. Why another? This is because I wrote a similar post before which is “Cute Japanese font for download” and successfully helped people to find a more unique Japanese fonts.
It is quite hard to find free Japanese fonts and all the sites are written in Japanese, so if you don’t know Japanese but wish to view and download the fonts, please view my post about “3 smart tools to translate Japanese sites & words” to translate to English.
5 Unique Fonts
In order to use this font, assuming you are using Windows XP, you need to have Asian text languages and input text installed into your machine. Then you can go to Control Panel and double click Regional and Language Options. Then click the Languages tab and click the Details button. In the Settings panel, click Add, then find and select the Japanese Input Languages and click “Ok”. Now, Japanese input is in your input panel. Now, you can type Japanese characters in MS Words, Photoshop etc by selecting the “JP” at the Language Toolbar.
