Hi I am looking for a Japanese Font. Any font would be fine but if I received a variety that would be nice. I can't seem to find where to download Japanese fonts. Thanks!

All "windows" computers have Asian fonts installed. I'd assume Mac does too, but I hate apple, so I don't know.

What I do, is go onto a Japanese site and get the characters I need and copy/paste into the project. Work 95% of the time with most modern computers. Not all characters are supported. If you have an Asian keyboard with kanji, you can set RPG Maker to Japanese mode when it plays via script for most RPG Makers.

My computer also does Hymmnos, and in a fanfic game I made, most of the writing for skills and signs are hymmnos. (Hymmnos is the language in the Ar Tonelico games)

Besides the Windows' default (MS Gothic & MS Mincho), there are many Japanese fonts on the internet. In Wikipedia, you can see this page.

Personally, I use M+ family font. It has a fixed-width variant, which helps when writing codes.

Check out for starters:

http://www.geocities.jp/ep3797/japanese_fonts.html

It will point you to a good number of Japanese fonts and gives some information on Japanese fonts.

I recommend you get the Tanuki Magic font. (Look for it on that page to find a link to its' site) I've seen that one used in several Japanese VX & VX Ace made games and it is my favorite Japanese font to use.

At this point, "unique and diverse cast of characters" might as well be slang for Every Character is a Human-Sue.
I found an absolutely brilliant lifehack on the internet today.
