All Hiragana or Katakana characters paste the following into search.

Good morning.
I have this not very long English text with occasional Japanese
characters in it.
I would like to search for ONLY the Japanese characters, naturally the
font is different from the English but attribut "regular" and size are
the same,
and if possible change their attributes (color, highlighting etc.).

Searching the net, I found:
"The Find and Replace dialog (Control+H) should be able to search for
text by font. Leave the "Find" box blank. Then go Other options > Format
and fill in the "Family" box."

I tried to search for all sorts of things: format, attribute, language
etc., but so far nothing helped finding Japanese characters.

If anybody knows how to do that, I would be grateful for a hint.
Thank you.
