I have intalled the latest version of OpenOffice for OS X, however I can't enter Japanese text. I have tried changing the language settings (in OO) but to no avail. Any suggestions?

Can you type Japanese in any other applications?

Yes. All other applications work fine. In fact, the machine was purchased in Japan.

When I try to switch the keyboard to "kana" mode by pressing the corresponding button immediately to the right of the space bar (not the apple button), a space is inserted in the document. Also, in the language settings and font menu, none of the Japanese characters are displayed. Instead, I see a simple square box where the character should be.

What font have you selected in OpenOffice? Make sure it is one that contains Japanese characters

It seems that OO running under x11 cannot access the Japanese fonts.

I'll continue using NeoOffice until an Aqua version of OpenOffice appears.

Thanks for your time.
