Sound is working fine for me, at least in rooms that do have sound. Can you give more details regarding the OS you're using? What are your sound settings in ScummVM? Which room are you in that has no sound? (not all rooms in Nippon Safes have music, some are completely silent)

With DOSBox when start nippon and select language then "peep" & permantenly background sounds. here a youtube video for example: I tested all Audio settings in Scummvm but not sound/music in nippon.

OS:aptosid 64-bit (Debian unstable)

Just tried this again, and music plays fine, both with General MIDI and Adlib music settings in ScummVM.

Try starting the game with Dough Nuts (smart). The first scene is outside the prison, where you need to go to the payphone and call a taxi. Is music working for you in these scenes? If not, try adjusting the music volume and make sure you haven't muted the sound. The music file for these scenes is "nuts.mid" - try recopying it from the original game files

Summary: NIPPON: no sound in dos versionNIPPON: no sound in dos version

I think there is still some problem with DOS music. DOS version should play music in intro, but there is a message:
WARNING: unknown character in DosSoundMan_ns_ns::playCharacterMusic!

With default music setting (I guess it's the same as AdLib) the intro music volume is extremely low.
With Windows MIDI setting the intro music plays just fine.
With MT-32 emulation setting there is only one note playing.

I'm using latest daily build for Win32.
