LC Server serves pages with a default "Content-Type" header of:

         Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

That would prevent the display of Japanese characters.

Try putting:

         put header "Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8"

at the top of your lc pages after the <?lc and before any other content.

See if this solves your problem.

Good luck,
