More on Japanese in Windows

If you just ripped your Japanese music collection only to find out Windows Explorer can’t display any of the tags, you probably used ID3 v2.4. Windows does not support 2.4—if you downgrade the files to ID3 v2.3, everything will display just fine. A good tool that can do this en masse is Mp3tag. This doesn’t only affect the UTF-8 fields: Windows won’t be able to read album art or anything else if you use v2.4.
