Does /usr/share/locale/ja_JP exist? Does "echo | perl" complain about
the locale when you have the locale set? What version of Redhat are you
running? What specifically have you tried?

Give up any hope of using Japanese at the console for the time being.
While current versions of linux support UTF-8 (but not EUC-JP) at the
console, they only support 512 distinct glyphs. What exactly have you
tried and what exactly were the results?
