If the Kobo OS is available in Swedish it should work. But I don't know if it supports that language.
As for the Japanese characters: no, not if you keep the language settings to your preferred language. For English, with Japanese locale settings, something like: en_JP -- but I'm not sure what the Japanese abbreviation is.
