My employer has tis marked as a Japanese keyboard.

This keyboard has only latin characters, a few extra punctuation marks including the Yen, and a different Capslock key.

Every Japanese keyboard I can find has both Latin characters and Hiragana on it. The only one that I can find available for current MacBooks is the JIS which works that way and has non-centered Latin characters.

Is this an Apple-specific keyboard that's no longer made? Do the Kana only appear when you toggle something?

It turns out this product was incorrectly labeled and this layout is configured for Chinese Pinyin input.
