Modern Japanese uses three main scripts:

Kanji, characters of Chinese origin,
Hiragana, a syllabary, and
Katakana, a syllabary.

To a lesser extent, modern written Japanese also uses the Latin alphabet. Examples of such usage include abbreviations such as "CD" and "DVD".

It is also possible to represent spoken or written Japanese entirely in the Latin alphabet. There are several common systems for the romanization of Japanese. Rōmaji is frequently used by foreign students of Japanese who have not yet mastered the three main scripts, and by native speakers for computer input.

Personally, I would be rather disappointed to see the Japanese language reduced to the Roman alphabet. Although it borrowed extensively from China, the writing system currently used in Japan is completely unique. It is a writing system of aesthetic quality that by itself explains a great deal of the history of the Japanese.
