If you are looking to match the serifs Mincho would be a good place to start.

It's one of the more traditional Japanese fonts.

Matching fonts between languages is tricky because there are requirements for how characters are used and laid-out.


I could not find a good match, but for those kind of serifs,

Copperplate Medium

I can only suggest this:

DynaComWare Yuugasou Std W5

though is too curly...

Anyway, if you are interested, the typeface is 優雅宋 Std W5 [ゆうがそう] (Yuugasou Std W5) from DynaComWare. I will keep looking for a better match.
