According to Distrowatch, Pinguy doesn't feature Asian-language support, so there's going to be some work to do. The only guide I can see for Ubuntu (on which Pinguy is based) is old, and may or may not help
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SCIM

If the worst comes to the worst, you may have to switch to one of the "big names", like Debian, OpenSUSE, Fedora which have a more international usage than Ubuntu and its derivatives.

If Zorin doesn't have any, there are good guides to fonts, with links to download sites, here:
http://www.unifont.org/fontguide/
http://www.wazu.jp/

If you've never installed a font, it's simple. Create a folder .fonts (don't forget the dot) in your home directory and unzip the font into it.

I got the ttf files, how to install it in Linux, e.g. in Opensuse and Ubuntu.
In windows it is easy.

As I said, use the file manager: create a folder called .fonts in your home directory, and move the ttf files to it. You can't get much easier than that!
