Have you had a look at www.mippin.com? I'm not sure how it handles Japanese
characters but it makes any website with a RSS feed mobile friendly, and
it's free. This means you can use whatever blogging software you want and
mippin does the rest. It also helps get you a wider distribution too.
Hope this helps

Subject: (keitai-l) Re: Blogging software for Japanese Keitai viewing
Typepad claims to automatically make blogs suitable for viewing on keitai,
including commenting features. Not sure whether this is unique to their
Japanese service or not. (If interested try accessing
http://hq.andreshuttleworth.com which is made using typepad.com).
As an aside, I think once the iPhone appears in Japan (this summer on
DoCoMo?) it will mark a turning point from existing mobile browsing to
fuller web browsing. From what I'm hearing the hardware side (larger
screens, touch screens) are getting cheaper. All we need now is the market
to realize that the experience is so much better on larger screens and show
the demand by buying iPhones in big numbers. I don't buy the argument that
most people won't want the larger phones. Let's see :-)
