This font is used in the english headers in a modern (2000-something) textbook teaching Japanese to English-speaking folks. I have seen it elsewhere too, in the english section of Japanese instruction manuals for instance.
While looking around the net, I have found quite a few fonts that are very close to this (using WhatTheFont and similar services) but none of them have managed to suggest an exact match.
Microgramma and Eurostile are quite close, but there's no cigar involved there... An important detail to match is the rounded-square nature.
