Are Japanese IME Compatible Fonts Available?

For awhile now I've been using Japanese IME to create banners and such in programs like Adobe Photoshop. However, I recently downloaded a few Japanese fonts, and found they weren't compatible. They use an English system so if I type a letter in English, the corrosponding symbol shows up. But this is a hassle to have to look up each symbol every time for long paragraphs of text, and I was wondering if it is possible to find Japanese fonts that will change the font of text typed in using a Japanese IME. (I'm using Windows ME with Japanese Language Pack installed if that helps).

Well the first site is for mac, but it isn't what I'm looking for anyway, and the same with the second site. Those fonts are layed out on an american keyboard... So you have to type english letters to get the kana. Like typing "MOO" would give me something like "To He He" in hiragana... Fonts I'm looking for allow me to type kana using Windows IME and have it actually change the font of the Japanese symbols. That way I could type "Watashi" and actually get the 3 kana for Watashi, and not 7 different random symbols...

Hi Ketay,

You can download the Japanese Font Pack that comes with Adobe Acrobat. This font pack includes a few 2-bit. I am not sure which fonts are included but it's worth a try:

You could also browse through Luc Devroye's Japanese Typography webpage. It contains dozens of links to everything that has to do with Japanese text, including links to fonts, both free and commercial:

Good Vibes!
