I'm following the instructions here to create a minimalist style map for Japan:
Now, I've downloaded the OSM data, used osm2pgsql, created the tilemill project and it now properly displays in TileMill.
However, all the displayed city name labels are in the Romanized (english) characters. Is there a way that I can get the Japanese (Kanji, hiragana, etc) displayed in place of thier romainzed dipictions? (Street names do appear in the original Japanese, sometimes with Romanized letters in parens)
I'm assuming that the original Japanese names are contained in the osm.pbf, but somewhere along the pipeline they are being ignored.
