Ok, mystery solved, bug confirmed.

Kotoeri is the default IME on OSX for Japanese, it offers, amongst other
things, Latin to Kana/Kanji conversion. This is what should happen:
1 Go to settings and add Japanese as a language, ensure that under input
sources for kotoeri "Romaji" (i.e. Latin) is selected for typing method
(unless you have a Japanese keyboard)
2 Open any program (I tested the Google search box in Firefox and
3 Top right of screen, change the UK/US/whatever flag to Japanese (wil show
a hiragan A)
4 Start typing. It should convert Romaji to Kana/Kanji automatically e.g.
shamisen > 三味線
sushi > すし
(for testing just pick any Japanese terms off wikipedia if you don't read

In GIMP (Partha's build) the conversion does not work, it simply enters the
Romaji i.e. Latin letters.

Ok so the problem was not that Partha did not know how to use an input
method to output Japanese, it was that he knew how, but that it worked
everywhere but in GIMP? That was not clear.

Partha, did you compile GTK+ yourself? If so, ensure that
--with-included-immodules=yes was set.
Note that reading the, it should normally be set by
default (unless for instance you also --disable-modules). But well,
make it a clear configure option to be double sure.

If even with this, that's still not working, but it's working
everywhere else, well maybe there is a broken support of input methods
for OSX in GTK+? Try another GTK+ app and check if you can write text
through an input method engine there.

Have fun.
