Honoka Mincho

Honoka Mincho

Honoka Mincho (ほのか明朝) is a beautiful free mincho Japanese font that you can download. Similar to Honoka Maru Gothic, the hiragana and katakana characters were slightly smaller and have more white space around them which makes this font an easy-to-read one. The kana were originally designed, while other characters were borrowed from IPA Mincho open source font.

    Pretty sure this was the font used in some Kimi No Na Wa posters.
