For some reason I can't seem to use the Microsoft Japanese IME in Emacs, even though I can apparently use the Microsoft Chinese IME to input Chinese without problems. Even if I've switched to the Japanese IME, only English is entered, and I cannot change the input mode to Hiragana or Katakana. The only way to input Japanese seems to be to use the built-in Japanese input method in Emacs, which is much more inconvenient. Is there anybody who successfully managed to use external Japanese input methods in Windows Emacs?
I know that under Linux you must set
LC_CTYPE to a CJK language in order to input such languages in Emacs. But since I can input Chinese just fine here, I don't think that's the problem.
The Emacs version I'm using comes from https://sourceforge.net/projects/emacsbinw64/
