I don't know about KDE konsole, but I'm using uxterm from the
xterm package, and a UTF-8 environment, and it all pretty much
just works...

Here's my /etc/environment:
And my /etc/locale.gen:
en_AU ISO-8859-1
en_AU.UTF-8 UTF-8
ja_JP.UTF-8 UTF-8

You'll need some fonts installed, but I have commented out
all the font options in my .Xresources, so I guess my uxterm
is picking a good enough one by default... I just grabbed all
the Japanese fonts I could see in apt-cache search.
