How to enable japanese font support?

Following BLFS's book,  I have installed X Windows and its subsequent guide 
to installing TTF.   My system's environment is in English by default which 
I have no intention of changing.

The problem is I view a lot of japanese websites (Mozilla), save a lot of 
mp3s in japanese fonts and plan to write japanese characters in OpenOffice 
or GIMP (both yet to be installed).   But viewing japanese fonts in Mozilla 
is my main concern.

I wonder, is it simply downloading japanese TTF packs (any available?) and 
putting it into /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/ ?

I really have no idea where to start looking.
