It is common in Japanese too. I think it is a general requirement to style an "alternate voice" in different fonts, and italics/oblique don't work well in Japanese either. Which one to use instead isn't very well standardized, vary by the author and the situation, but usually a specific group of families that represents the author's intention best, such as serif/sans-serif, rounded, Kaisho, Reishotai, Kointai, (the last three examples are Japanese specific families) etc.
