Do you use netscape-ja-resource-* ? 
Otherwise, some page crash netscape because of netscape's bug.

AFAIK, netscape prints page using postscript, so you need postscript printer
with Japanese fonts. netscape uses Ryumin-Light-RKSJ-H font for Japanese text.
See *documentFonts.shift_jis*psname or *documentFonts.euc-jp*psname in

To print out using ghostscript, debian's gs package requires -dKANJI option
to handle Japanese text.  If you run gs with LANG=ja_JP.eucJP, -dKANJI
is automatically used.  So gs is used for lpr filter, you add -dKANJI option
or run lpd with LANG=ja_JP.eucJP.
