How to display Japanese characters in an attribute table?

I am currently using ArcGIS Desktop 10.5 and I am using Japanese landuse data. My problem is, once I download the file and load it, I cannot see the fonts in the attribute table. The fonts appear gibberish.

How can I display these Japanese fonts? I tried to install the ArcGIS 10 Service Pack 1 Language Pack Update but received an error like this. 

I searched for the patch for Arc GIS 10.5 but only found this Esri Support 10.5. However, I am still not sure if this is the solution. I also checked the thread posted 6 years ago -  but did not find the solution (also the thread that they have mentioned is not available now). 

Can someone please show me how to display the Japanese characters in the attribute table?

This is from the current help.... under localized ArcGIS

Did you log in to your My Esri, check your organization's downloads site to see if language packs are available there?
