I cannot comment on Japanese. But as my wife is from Korea we often do a 
smilar trick for e.g. a konquerer. My scripts looks like:
#! /bin/bash
export XMODIFIERS=@im=Ami
export LC_CTYPE=ko_KR.eucKR
export LANG=ko_KR.eucKR

It tells the X server that it should use kinput2 as its Input Manager.
However, if you are using KDE your .xinitrc will not be executed. So in my 
case I added the corresponding entry for AMI in my script.

Hope that helps.
