b)      Go to the 'Keyboards and Language' tab.

c)      On the 'General' tab click 'Add'.

d)      Navigate to Japan and select Japanese and Microsoft IME options.

e)      Click ‘OK’, you should have those options in your list now.

f)       Go to the ‘Language’ bar tab in the same panel, and check 'Docked in the Taskbar'.

g)      The language bar lets you select Japanese language by clicking on the EN, then switch to Japanese.

h)      Change the keyboard input then by clicking on the capital A and changing it to “”.

i)         You should be typing in Japan now.
