You will correctly *display* Japanese chars to install proper fonts
and to set properly
(or to use tools which support Japanese).

But I have never set Japanese chars to realm parameter, though Microsoft
supports UTF-8 chars ( see ).

In addition  we will usually set ASCII chars only into Active Directory domain
name in Japan.
