Well this is what I initially thought.  But SCIM packager told me
otherwise.  Just last one is enough with GTK_IM_MODULE=xim
and QT_IM_MODULE=xim.  Which will be likely to cause less trouble.

First, im-switch package (which I am part of it.) is good start.
Then I recommend scim-anthy for Japanese.

If you also want to have traditional encoding terminals, m17n-env
package may help.

If your primary language is not Japanese, you probably want to keep
display (or default locale) other than Japanese.  

scim and im-switch package comes with ample discussion on how to do it.

Good luck. 


I am using scim-anthy under en_US.UTF-8.
