Wayland and fcitx5 (japanese input)

Does anyone here have a working setup for fcitx under wayland? I currently have

  i18n.defaultLocale = "en_US.UTF-8";
  i18n = {
    inputMethod = {
      enabled = "fcitx5";
      fcitx.engines = with pkgs.fcitx-engines; [ mozc ];
      fcitx5.addons = with pkgs; [


    extraSessionCommands = ''

      export INPUT_METHOD=fcitx
      export QT_IM_MODULE=fcitx
      export GTK_IM_MODULE=fcitx
      export XMODIFIERS=@im=fcitx
      export XIM_SERVERS=fcitx

and I can start fcitx5 just fine and configure it but the input selection switch won’t show up under e.g., Alacritty and Firefox. I can make it work for Alacritty by starting with WAYLAND_DISPLAY= alacritty but that doesn’t seem like a sustainable workaround since it messes with other display settings.

Should I just give up on Japanese input on Wayland in at least browser and terminal?
