This is the list of Japanese developed plug-ins, previously introduced during the "Movable Type Idea Exchange" conference held on October 18th, 2012 in New York.
The Japanese community is currently one of the most active among the world's Movable Type communities, with Japanese developers creating many original plug-ins and themes. All of the plug-ins included on this list are compatible with Movable Type 5.2's English environment.

The list of plug-ins is but a sampling of what is currently available from the Japanese end. We will continue to translate previously developed plug-ins for introduction to the international MT community.
Although the plug-ins included on the current list have been double-checked for MT 5.2 English environment compatibility, please understand that there may be some cases where a plug-in might not be 100% compatible.
Also, as the developers are Japanese, many of them cannot speak English very well. Please understand that it might be impossible for developers to be able to answer questions or concerns directly due to the language barrier.
