I think so.... You will have to try and get the .kbd file from a Japanese WIN98 installation disk. Your programs will have to support it also.

It may only be possible if you install the Japanese version of WIN98

Yes Win98 english can support the keyboard layout but not the Japenese text.  Some of the things like : / ect... are in different locations.  all you have to do is find the locations of the missplaced : / and so forth.  But you can use the Japenese Keyboard on an english system.  Some of the keys do not have a function in english!  I'm a tech on Okinawa Japan and I use Japenese keyboards everyday on english systems.

Windows 98 supports many other languages. To install a language go to control panel->add-remove-> windows setup-> multilanguage support. You can choose the language from here.
