I'm building this font in order to support my own study of the Japanese language. That is likely to take several years. To my knowledge, it is the first Japanese-language font made natively with Metafont technology; others exist as conversions from other formats without true parameterization. It's free under the GPL version 3 with font-embedding clarification.

OCR-A and OCR-B

Download (ZIP)

OCR-A is the font used for the ISBNs on books; and OCR-B is used for the human-readable digits on UPC/EAN bar codes. A book with a standard bar code label uses both.

I translated existing Metafont sources to MetaType1 to create the enhanced TrueType, PostScript, and OpenType versions included in this package. They are available for free use, including in commercial applications; my own contributions are public domain, and others have licensed their copyright claims.

Original TTF files: STRFNSAN.TTF and STRFNSER.TTF

Symbol fonts of astrological glyphs. Originally released as TTF files created by Anthony I.P. Owen; I later packaged the fonts for use with LaTeX. They are now distributed as part of TeXLive.

Genjimon

These curious symbols are connected with Japanese culture: the Tale of Genji, incense appreciation, and woodblock prints. They also have some mathematical significance. These fonts are freeware under the GNU GPL 3 with font-embedding clarification.
