> FYI Korean script (Hangul) is actually an alphabet, so relatively easy to type.

Japanese is typed using kana, though they're syllabaries and have about twice the number of characters as hangul, the end-result is mostly similar (so is the on-the-fly transformative effect, in japanese kana entry is transformed into kanji OTF, in hangul jamo get merged into natsori).

Japanese can be typed as kana, but most people type rĊmaji (Latin characters).

Most people on a computer. Most people type kana on their phone.

Yes, that's true. Japanese is, luckily, a language quite suited to cellphone number pad input.
