If you have a 106-key Japanese keyboard (I think that is the most
common one), in XF86Config, Section "Keyboard", you need to set
XkbModel        "jp106"
XkbLayout       "jp"

In the console mode, use loadkeys to load a proper keboard map. I
have put 'loadkeys /usr/lib/kbd/keytables/' in one of the
startup files (rc.local).
