Normalizes Japanese numbers (kansūji) to regular Arabic numbers.

Japanese numbers are often written using a combination of kanji and Arabic numbers with punctuation marks. Normalizing Japanese numbers can make those numbers more easily searchable and improve matching accuracy.

For example, tJapaneseNumberNormalize normalizes 3.2千 to 3200. This enables you to match the Japanese number "3.2千" with its Arabic counterpart "3200".

In local mode, Apache Spark 2.4.0 and later versions are supported.
