Yes, been dealing with JIS (think it is J Industrial S) since 1963.
But we can blame Hirohito, if you want!

Grinding the tip off a Phillips also works...otherwise tip bottoms out without full engagement.

JIS screws are all over my CRF (as you might expect), so I got myself a full set of Vessel JIS screwdrivers, and a set of screwdriver insert bits too.
