Install kon (for normal console) or jfbterm (for framebuffer console)
package to display Japanese.

For input, unfortunately, there are no standard like XIM in X Window
environment.  You can use emacs, nvi-m17n-canna, and so on which can
input Japanese.  Please read /usr/share/doc/language-env/README.ja.en
for detail.  (The document is included in language-env package.)
