Will a US PS4 play games from other regions?

I live in the US, but there are some games that are only released in Japan. Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Fortune, for example, isn’t coming to the US. If I get an import copy will it work on my PS4? Also, what’s the easiest way to get Japanese only releases in the US?
Keep in mind that while the PS4 and its games are not region locked, DLC is. It's not a big deal to me, but I know it is for some people.

The easiest way I know of to get Japan only physical releases is Play Asia. Their prices are generally comparable to what it would cost to get a US release. Link to the PS4 section of their site:
PS4 is not region locked, so you shouldn't have a problem playing games from a different region. As far as obtaining the game, I saw a gamesradar article that walks you through setting up the account under Japan's PSN and buying the games online. No sure how easy it is to obtain a Japanese address and PSN card but take a look.
