Japanese fonts in Windows 8.1

The Meyrio UI font is used in Windows 8.1. This has not changed from Windows 8.

Windows 8.1 includes Yu Gothic and Yu Mincho, two font families to support Japanese document viewing and editing. Although Windows Phone uses a Yu Gothic variant for its Japanese user interface, the Windows 8.1 version of Yu Gothic is not recommended for app UI.
