I want to use f and t command for Unicode characters, so lmap is the way to go. I can map a letter to a Japanese kanji:

:lmap k 中

then after i_CTRL-^, I can press fk to locate

However, there is a problem. There are only 26 letters, so I have to map a single letter to multiple characters. Or it will be meaningless. Actually I hope to map the first letter of the English spelling to the underlying Kanji character.

Then how can I lmap a letter to multiple alternative characters?

This direction may not work.

I just re-nmap all these fa, fb, ..., fz to function calls. And it works.
