Microsoft supplies fonts that probably do what you want.

MS Gothic is part of the Japanese language pack that should be on your NT 4
CD-ROM. You can also install it via Windows Update on the Tools menu in IE

MS Mincho contains more characters, and is supplied with Office 2000 and
FrontPage 2000.

You can find information about Unicode fonts that support particular
languages and ranges at:
