Unfortunately it didn't work. I get this:

Gdk-Message: locale not supported by C library

and the labels stops to display any Japanese. Only empty spaces.
I have try first to:

export LANG=en_JP.ujis 

and then both:

export LANG=ja_JP.ujis
export LC_LANG=en_JP.ujis

None worked. Only export LANG=ja_JP.ujis alone works.
