Japanese Fonts

This is a collection of Japanese and Japan-related True Type fonts for Windows and Apple computers. The font sets are made available “as is” and all use is at your own risk.

Most of these font sets have been available for download to our visitors since August 4, 2001. Since then we have had almost 1 million downloads!

Disclaimer: The fonts presented on Japan Reference (JREF) are their respective authors' properties. All fonts are periodically checked to ensure they are either freeware, shareware, demo, public domain or under an open source license. Please refer to the readme and license file(s) inside the font zip folders or check the indicated author's website for additional details, and contact them if in doubt. If no license is indicated that is due to lack of information which does not necessarily mean it is free.
