You've been here long enough to know that this is really not lounge material - QA would be a better place.
Delete it quick, or don your asbestos undercrackers!
Why? He hasn't asked how to implement a technology or for any code. He's asked about a technology and if anyone knows anything about it (with a specific question) so he doesn't have to download, install and possible write code around it to then find out it doesn't do what he wants.
I think it's a fair enough question for the Lounge though I had no interest in it.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004

I'm going to don my flameproof suit here because I'm about to ask you something that some people don't like. Are you sure that your requirement is to use OpenCV? From what I can gather, adding the ability to support things like Japanese is considered very, very difficult in OpenCV. Bear in mind that it's not really a dedicated OCR system.
If you need to use a dedicated OCR library, it's my understanding that the open source library to use is Tesseract[^]. The page I've linked to has all the latest language files that it supports.
