Latin != Roman.
Latin was still being used around the time contact with Japan became
common--I know at least Ioannes Petrus Maffeius was writing about Japan
(and inflecting Japanese words as Latin, albeit spelling them funny) in
the sixteenth century--Chinese, which was already known to the
ancient Romans, wouldn't be too much of a stretch at all.
(And no, I havnt made a Latin-Chinese conlang. The closest I have is
http://wiki.frath.net/Latin_Pinyin ... a rough system for transcribing
Chinese into roughly Classical Latin spelling.)
