There are several free fonts in Debian that have Japanese glyphs[1].

However, I suggest you use fontconfig/freetype/pango to render text
using whatever fonts are available on the system rather than relying
on one specific font. I'm not sure how compatible that would be with
lincity-ng though.

BTW, I'm curious to know why lincity-ng is lincity-ng and not lincity
2.0? Also, Debian seems to have both lincity and lincity-ng, is that a
good idea? Looks like lincity is no longer maintained upstream.
