You have been subscribed to a public bug:

When running KDE apps under either GNOME or KDE on Hardy with LANG=en_US.UTF8, some Kanji are displayed improperly (only a square is displayed). If 'Japanese' is chosen as the language from the GDM login screen resulting in LANG=ja_JP.UTF8, the same Kanji which were previously displayed incorrectly are displayed correctly. The easiest way to reproduce this is:
1) log into GNOME or KDE, choosing 'English' as the GDM language
2) open a KDE app such as 'kate', 'knotes', etc
3) input UTF8 character 'E5 B7 BB' / UTF-16 '5DFB' KAN/maki http://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUnihanData.pl?codepoint=5dfb
4) character will display as a square

Repeat the above steps choosing 'Japanese' as the GDM language, the
character will display properly
