Reading Japanese Characters from Text File

Hi,
I have a text file where the text is written in Japanese. While I want to read the file using Java it can not recognise the japanese characters and it is giving "???" like characters instead of Japanese characters.

FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream("out.txt");
InputStreamReader isr = new InputStreamReader(fis,"UTF-8");

Reader in = new BufferedReader(isr);

StringBuffer buf = new StringBuffer();
int ch;
while ((ch = in.read()) > -1) {
buf.append((char)ch);
}
in.close();

String message = new String(buf.toString()); // Here i want the japanese characters to appear
System.out.println(message);

I have also tried "Shift_Jis" encoding isnstead of "UTF-8" encoding also.

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Souvik
