java.lang.Character.UnicodeBlock class is useful class to detect the
character kind.

What does it mean? If you configure fontconfig.properties, you could
display katakana, hiragana and kanji with tonpuu gothic/mincho to use
general java font set such as Dialog, Serif, etc.

> //fontMenu.setFont( new Font( "東風ゴシック", Font.PLAIN, 40 ));
> //fontMenu.setFont( new Font( "東風明朝", Font.PLAIN, 40 ));
> fontMenu.setFont( new Font( "GT2000-01", Font.PLAIN, 40 ));

If you configure fontconfig.properties right, you could use Japanese
character without special font set. You don't have to specify special
font set here. You can use Japanese with ngeneral pre-defined font set
in Java like Dialog, Serif, Monoscaped and etc.
