I can read the above Japanese.  Your mail is written in UTF-8 and
has proper information in the header.

Note that mule-ucs package is needed to handle UTF-8 mails in
emacs-based mailers, like mew and wanderlust which are popular
among Japanese people.  Since mule-ucs causes very slow invocation
of emacsen, I think major part of Japanese users don't install
mule-ucs, which causes most of Japanese users cannot read UTF-8

Even I installed mule-ucs just now, in order to read your mail!
