fedora fc8 and japanese fonts

I am working on some scores using a japanese font for hiragana lyrics.
My guess is that the default font is VLGothic  as that is the font that
always shows up in the file -> properties -> fonts   when evince has an
open document and no specific font is named.
The VL Gothic  fonts look somewhat industrial to me so I was looking around
for some alternatives in  /usr/share/fonts.    There were two other
fonts that I tried
sazanami-gothic  and sazanami-mincho to see if there was any difference.
I don't know how it works on other systems but the font-name that lily uses
has to come from   /etc/fonts/conf.d   and then  grep for  something like
azanami.   So whats below doesn't work

\new Lyrics  \with  {  alignBelowContext = "vocalmelody"  }
  \lyricsto  "vocalmelody"  {
      \override LyricText #'font-name = #"sazanami-mincho"
      \override LyricText #'font-size = #2
      \override LyricSpace #'minimum-distance = #1.0

But changing this one line does
      \override LyricText #'font-name = #"Sazanami Mincho"

If someone can provide further explanation I would appreciate it as I
fiddled for quite some time to figure this out.  Or is there a list that
lily uses with the correct way to enter the font names?
