How can I make my computer understand Japanese?

I just moved to Japan and my computer always shows question marks where Japanese writing should be. Is there a plug in or something I can get from somewhere so my computer can show the Japanese writing?

        Don’t forget to set it as the default language, you will still be able to see english fine but certain character sets won’t display even if you install east asian language support without setting it as default.
