How do I get LibreOffice to input Japanese text?

So I installed LinuxMint 17 12 hours ago, and have been trying to install Japanese language input on this Japan bought Japanese laptop (I got rid of Windows) for this Office product (LibreOffice).

I do have the keyboard set to Japan/Japanese (the keyboard also has Hiragana on it); I SEE "Japanese" in the screen at the bottom of the LibreOFfice when I change language input (from English).... BUT IT ALWAYS stays AS ABC ENGLISH.

I installed iBus for Japanese (whatever that is), I installed Japanese in the settings, I installed JILT (whatever that is) but its just a confusing mess as far as LOGICAL human thinking goes.

Are there any logically-minded human beings on the planet who can explain how to do it?
