Any ideas very welcome! Has there been any progress on this front recently?How about http://www.geocities.jp/ep3797/japanese_fonts.html?Thanks, that's a great page. It has a wide selection of fonts with nice previews.One slightly strange thing is in its list of reasons for the paucity of free Japanese fonts.3. Font authors don't want to see their fonts on adult sites. So they don't want to make it free (GPL etc). Is this a real reason?"Aoyagi Kouzan" is a brush style font.I downloaded the OpenType version of that font from http://musashi.or.tv/aoyagikouzanfont.htm It installed fine.It really looks like a brush stroke. The "no" character simulates a brush stroke so much that it seems to be half missing :-)I'll ask Mr Kuroda if he likes it first before mucking about with TeX
