Hi,

In order to print such characters which are not in iso-latin-1 standard you would need to change the character set for your device type. You would need to create a new device type which would include japanese characters. There are several ways in order to make it work, but it depends on your printing env.
1) In case you use an wintel print server then you can use JPSAPWIN device type , please ensure it have character set 8037.
2) In case you directly send a PCL/PS file to the printer then you can use a postscript device type which have character set – 8017 -Japanese PostScript Printer Shift-JIS .
