Can't type hiragana on Japanese IME keyboard after updating to Windows 10

After updating to Windows 10, I went to change the keyboard to type in Japanese. Even after changing to the hiragana setting, it still only types in English letters and doesn't change to hiragana. I've uninstalled the keyboard pack and reinstalled with no success. Please help!

Thanks for your feedback.

 Microsoft support suggests that you can use the hotkeys to switch between input modes quickly:
  • Press + to change the input language
  • Press + to change to Hiragana
  • Press + to change to Katakana
  • Press + to toggle between alphanumeric and kana modes

As a side note: if you were really intent on making Hiragana your default input, you could write an AutoHotkey script to do this for you. However, this involves understanding that scripting language.
