My guess--it's a bit late to test it tonight---is that as long as your terminal can handle Japanese you should be alright. 

That is, it's probably easiest to, while running X, use a terminal emulated, e.g., uxterm or urxvt (rxvt-unicode), and check the LC_CTYPE.  Generally, something like
LC_CTYPE=en_US-UTF-8 will be able to read Japanes, but it will probably also depend upon the LC_CTYPE settings on the remote machine.

As English is my first language, I've never quite had to do it that way, but at times, have had to remotely read emails in mutt using Japanese.
