Way to small to try to identify -

From a more complete printout you posted earlier (very small) my guess is that the font is EPSON 教科書体M, pronounced kyoukasho tai M; cf the thread http://typophile.com/node/101931.

The postscript name is EPSON-KYOKASHO
NameID=7 EPSON 教科書体M and EPSON-KYOKASHO is a trademark of SEIKO EPSON CORPORATION.

Epson Kyokasho has narrow characters in the ASCII range and the corresponding normal characters in the range uniFF01 to uniFF5D.

If I extrapolate the digits in the two ranges by 160%, if I interpolate the uppercase characters by 50% and if I use the lowercase in the 0xFF31-0xFF5A range (except for m and w) I get the following, which is pretty close to your sample:

I could not find the EULA. The font can be extracted with unzip from an exe file found on the EPSON site http://www.epson.jp/download2/printer/driver/win/page/ttf30.htm which is all in Japanese.

If, like me, you never run exe files except from very trusted sources, you can use a procedure for applying WinRAR to extract the fonts without running the exe, as described by "Sham" in the Yahoo answer at https://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20130523231027AAy7WJb
Worked perfectly for me on the exe mentioned by Michael.
Now to see if I can replicate his extrapolation & interpolation result :)

Here is what I did (on my mac):

M-505 % unzip ttf30.exe

You can also change the extension .exe for .zip and click.
