I have a Paperwhite (I believe the second iteration) and I was wondering if it's able to display Japanese characters? I don't have it with me for this week or I'd try myself, just curious if anyone's tried this out? Are you able to look up definitions still, and would it be the English translation of the words or Japanese definitions? My Kindles overall language setting would be English.
I know for a fact that the Kindle displays Japanese characters - both kana and kanji but I've never used a Japanese to English dictionary on mine so I can't confirm whether it works or not. With the proper dictionary installed I see no reason why that would be a problem though.
