Hi, I know this is a ML for XeTeX, but anyway ...

TeX Live 2012 includes pTeX/upTeX so if you can install
TeX Live 2012 and you don't need to stick to XeTeX,
I believe pTeX/upTeX would be the best solution for you.

XeTeX is good enough for ordinary Japanese type setting but
for vertical type setting it is not enough as far as I know.

I guess LuaTeX (or Omega etc.) is practically not usable for 
vertical type setting neither.

I'm very sorry if you need a solution with XeTeX.
