You're probably going to want to use OOo 1.1beta; 1.0.2 will work, but
there's an irritating bug when dealing with documents containing both
English and Japanese -- namely, having to manually switch between an
ISO-8859-1 compliant font and one that supports Japanese characters.
If you have kinput2 set up properly, along with cannaserver, you should
be fine -- just run OOo out of the box, and use the standard
'shift-space' to switch between English and Japanese input modes.
