In principle you may specify the -font configuration option on all your Button, Entry, Label, Message, etc. widgets. In addition to the Unix programs xfontsel and xlsfonts you may find xset useful for determining and/or specifying fonts - especially international ones.
Kobayasi Hiroaki <firstname.lastname@example.org> has converted the Tcl/Tk "japanization" by <email@example.com> so that it may be used with perl/Tk. It is presently available (the current README file is in Japanese) from:
ftp://ftp.sowa.is.uec.ac.jp/pub/Lang/perl5/Tk/Tk-b9.jp-a6.gzFrom the author's own description:
Currently, the "japanization patch for perl/Tk" enables:  To show kanji & ASCII (by choosen kanji-font) in every widget.  To edit kanji (double width of ASCII) correctly in Text & Entry.  To support of Kanji Input method. (tkKinput.c)  Automatic kanji-code-detection & conversion with 'insert/get'. Supports: "JIS(Japanese Industrial Standard)", "MS-KANJI", "EUC". & the patch lacks:  by manual Kanji-code conversion. (JIS <=> MS-KANJI <=> EUC)  'Good' interface to specify kanji-code used in internal. (tkWStr.c)  Documentation in English about [1-6]. # but, since interface-change is suspected in near future, # documenting them is ... I thought that[5-7] was not enough for world-people, but already worth for natives. So I announced it on "fj.lang.perl".
