I'm wondering anyone knows if there's a way to easily incorporate  
Japanese text along with its romanization in bibtex. The idea is to  
produce something like this, ideally with the option to not print the  

Natsume Sōseki [夏目漱石], Wagahai wa neko de aru (I am a cat)  
[吾輩は猫である], Tōkyō: Ōkura Shoten, 1905.

While not especially common in publishing, it seems useful to include  
kanji in a bibliography, if only for personal archival purposes. The  
problem here is with the author names, naturally, not with the  
titles. Also, dealing with name and surname order properly would be  

I am using jurabib at the moment because it seems it's the closest  
thing out there to the Chicago footnote citation/bibliography system  
that we use in the humanities.
