How do I convert an English word to Japanese in Photoshop?

I would like to display the word "Welcome" in Japanese kanji characters in vertical text in a Photoshop document.  Is it possible to do that?
The letters need to be white with a transparent background as they are to be superimposed on a gradient image. This is not essential to the project I'm working on but it would nbe reallycool!

Thanks!

No.  Where could I get them with a transparent background, or at least in white against a dark background?

Thanks,
