Will you be using platex for all your writing? (seems natural to me,  
given your location). In that case: open the TeXShop preferences. The  
popup menu in the lower-left corner of of the preferences window will  
allow you to select a default that uses platex instead of latex. I  
don't know whether you should use Shift JIS or EUC, I think those are  
different character encodings.

If you'll only be using this occasionally, you might be better off  
with a custom engine. Read the help on information on that subject.

Best regards,
