NTT DoCoMo uses a different flavor of Java called DoJa; a MIDlet won't
work. It's only possible to install applications over-the-air.
KDDI used to have MIDP support, but now switched to BREW, an
application environment based on C/C++. At the time KDDI had Java
support, I was able to download a MIDlet via cable and a software
provided by KDDI.
Vodafone/Softbank should support MIDP. Last time I tried to download a
MIDlet over-the-air to a phone from a Japanese manufacturer, I had to
register with an authorized developer site. But I think different
phones have different requirements at Vodafone. Maybe the Nokias don't
have these restrictions.
