I used Anthy with XEmacs (japanese-anthy input method) recently and it
seems comparable to the japanese-canna input method.

What I find annoying is that when running XEmacs, if Anthy is installed
on the system, XEmacs starts it up and all it takes to change input
methods is a couple of ESCs.  When I switch workspaces, my window
manager seems to send an escape character to the application in the new
window.  So I keep switching input methods unintentionally.

I also heard good things about SCIM, but when I tried it for Japanese
input, I found the Kanji conversion to be quite poor (I tried the
version that came with SuSE 9.1 - I hear it has changed a lot since
then).  Does anyone here have experience with it?  I'm interested in how
other people have found it.

Anyhow, I have a bit of info on how to input Japanese and save as UTF-8
on my page, if anyone is interested:
