I'm currently trying to practice creating Japanese book layouts in indesign but even after I tried to follow the "Compose CJK characters" article (https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/composing-cjk-characters.html) because I couldn't find the mojikumi settings. When I went to InDesign > Preferences > Composition (Mac OS) I didn't see the mojikumi settings available. 

 

If you know how to enable Japanese text editing options in Indesign, I'd really appreciate it if you teach me 🙂

I think you will need to install the Japanese version of InDesign. This can be done by changing the language setting in the Creative Cloud application. See the following help article on how to do that

I tried that and I got the setting and tools I wanted, but then all the settings were labeled in Japanese, and my Japanese is not good enough to understand everything. 

 

I'm trying to figure out how to get the Japanese tools and settings, but with the program still operating in English.
