Raspberry Pi 400 for Japan
It’s hard to believe that Raspberry Pi 400, our computer in a keyboard, is a whole year old. Yet here we are, hastily blowing up balloons and prepping the Raspberry Pi Towers confetti cannons in celebration. And to make this a really special occasion, it’s now available with a Japanese keyboard layout.
If you’re new to Raspberry Pi and haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, Raspberry Pi 400 is our homage to the classic home computers of our collective childhoods, packing the power of Raspberry Pi 4 into our in-house designed keyboard. Simply plug in a mouse, connect to your monitor of choice, and away you go.

Until now, Raspberry Pi 400 has been available in nine different layouts:

And today, we can reveal a tenth: Japan!

Maybe you can make a deal with Sanrio, to emblazon it it with a Gudetama logo somewhere? You’ll sell 10x as many if you could manage that. ;)
I think Neon Genesis Evangelion color schemes will be more popular.
Have you ever considered adding the few missing standard PC keys, i.e. “Insert”, “Pause”, “Break”, “Right Logo”, “Menu”, and “Keypad Enter”, as additional “Fn” key combinations? Also, have you considered translating the special key inscriptions – for example the original IBM German keyboards, and most other non-Apple German keyboards until today, use “Pos 1” for “Home”, “Druck” for “PrtScn”, “×” and “÷” for keypad “*” and “/”, and so on.
I just wish I could buy a Pi 400 that didn’t look like a toy. Sorry.
In the real world it looks like an apple keyboard but in plastic, but you can paint it if you want
Also expected with a Hungarian layout?
Is this going to be available to purchase outside of Japan at any point? I would quite like to get the Japanese version in the U.K.
