"Try Alt + ` to toggle direct kana input.

On a Japanese keyboard, try Alt + the カタカナ|ひらがな|ローマ字 key (to the right of the space key).
With Windows 7 you get a confirmation dialog in case you accidentally hit this key combination."

"It's Ctrl + Shift + Caps Lock.
I have to type more to let me post, so I'll wish you a nice day."

It's long time since then but for those who still need a countermeasure: You can press combination of Ctrl + Shift + Caps Lock ==> this will switch between Kana input and Romaji input that you may push them accidentally and get angry with the facing situation: Japanese keyboard but no-Japanese typing.
