SCI Sierra On-Line Japanese Games

Sierra On-Line released a few games in Japan, fully translated to Japanese.

The following games may have been released as well: RAMA, Torin's Passage, Gabriel Knight 2

The 3.25" 1.2MB floppies (Space Quest 4, King's Quest 5) are only readable on PC using special floppy drives, that support Mode 3. For example the Sony USB PCGA-UFD5. Floppies will still not just work in Windows, you will probably need [RawWrite for Windows] and finally [DiskExplorer] to extract the files from the images.

The 5.25" floppies (Quest for Glory 1, Police Quest 2) however can be read using a regular PC 5.25" floppy drive.
