About Source Han Sans CJK Japanese

These fonts include all glyphs for Japanese and other East Asian languages. The default glyphs are those for Japanese. Glyphs for other languages are accessible in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop.

Adobe Originals logo

The Adobe Originals program started in 1989 as an in-house type foundry at Adobe, brought together to create original typefaces of exemplary design quality, technical fidelity, and aesthetic longevity.

Today the Type team’s mission is to conduct original research and development for type at Adobe, making sophisticated and even experimental typefaces that explore the possibilities of design and technology. Typefaces released as Adobe Originals — fully-featured families and smaller “Concept” projects alike — are the result of years of work and study, regarded as industry standards for the ambition and quality of their development.
