This package enables selection of 5 standard Japanese fonts for pLaTeX + dvips. The package was originally written by Haruhiko Okumura as part of jsclasses bundle, and the TFM/VF files were previously distributed as part of ptex-fonts package. Now all these files are distributed as a separate package, maintained by Japanese TeX Development Community.

"Morisawa" is the name of Japanese font vendor, but here we use only generic font names; it means that there is no need for actual Morisawa fonts.
