Liz Castro had a fairly interesting talk on EPUB3 and Japanese typography, including an example Epub (3) showing how to do markup for TCY, Kenten, and Ruby, and of course showing the setup for vertical writing.

She posted the slides and the epub on her blog: http://www.pigsgourdsandwikis.com/20...1_archive.html

Be aware however that since this is epub3 there is a limited pool of reading systems that currently support this.
