Hi Shoji,

As far as I know variants should be working with code that uses the 
RessourceLoader. It might not be working with other ways to load 

Have you reported the issue in JIRA?

Nevertheless, you could still use some trick to use ja_JP_Kyoto in 
ja_JP. Appending the content of your ja_JP_Kyoto file at the en of your 
ja_JP file should work.

Please let me know,
