This looks like the metatag was not set correctly for Japanese. Possibly should be Shift_Jis. Send me the code for the page if this doesn't solve your problem.
I looked at the code. There is an extra quotation mark in the content metatag. Should read: CONTENT="text/html; charset=Shift_JIS"
I deleted the extra quote. Please see if this remedies the problem for everyone?
