[Corpora-List] Searching Japanese corpora

My thanks to everyone who took the time to respond to my question
(Alexander Yeh, Asao Kojiro, Brett Reynolds, Brett Powley, Cyrus
Shaoul, and Hiroaki Sato). It sounds like there are no specific query
tools to accommodate searching Japanese corpora in the manner I
envisioned, but that standard tools like grep are adequate. While
searching across multiple scripts might be a problem in theory, in
actual texts, the choice of scripts seems somewhat constrained (by
sociolinguistic factors?), so maybe it's not such a big problem in
the real world.

Thanks again, and a Happy Christmas to all,
