I've searched for several hours and haven't come up with a reference - or even many discussions - of how to go about validating Japanese names, addresses, etc. When I lived in Japan websites, atm's etc. required such info to be entered with the roman alphabet
but I've seen some websites that are allowing Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana. I haven't tested many of them for validation but one that I did test (after looking at the page source and discovering no client-side validation) allowed me to put this in the name field:
Any pointers/references? Thanks

Pretty underwhelming response :-)
I figured it out (maybe - tests OK so far). Works with unicode ranges. Specifically:
Allows English alpha and digits plus a dash, space, underscore and period and the three Japanese character sets.
Any suggestions for improvement will be appreciated.
