## Japanese font for numbers / arithmetic?

Submitted by Robert L. on 15 April 2013 - 7:43pmI have seen this font (digits and math symbols only?) in a number of places having to do with Japanese abacus and mental arithmetic practice.

If you google "flash anzan" (that is, a rather intense form of mental arithmetic practice), you will likely see this font used for the numbers.

I chose this for my sample because it contains all ten digits. The character that looks like a solidus is really the digit 1 (one). I believe that commas, decimal points, and symbols for basic arithmetic exist for this font, but as far as I know, it contains no characters beyond this.
