Some sources say yes, most say no. The overall catridge length is close, but the 9mm Japanese has a longer case, and a thinner rim. The pressure levels are lower than .38 S&W specs, but factory .38 S&W is loaded pretty light anyways on account of all the old S&W top breaks out there. 9mm Japanese uses a .355 bullet instead of a .361 as with .38 S&W, which is what really worries me.

Long story short, it might (emphasis on might) work, but I'm not gonna risk my gun, let alone my health, to find out.
