The Japanese model Zauruses do Japanese out of the box.  Of course,
I don't know precisely what that means, or how it compares to what you'd
want.  I just know that when you buy models such as the SL-C700 in the US,
you can get them from places which alter the 'ROM' so that /most/ of the
menus and interface is in English, instead of Japanese.  (They also appear
to have some Japanese symbols on the keyboards.)

http://www.zaurususergroup.com/ might have details.  Good luck!

(And once you get your shiny new Z, be sure to check out the shiny new
software index:  http://www.elsix.org/ )
