Interesting.  What version of Mutt are you using?  If I'm doing Japanese,
I use a bodged version of Kikutani-sans patches (which IIRC don't apply
cleanly any more even to the source distribution they're supposed to,
and don't appear to be being maintained).

If you're just using bog-standard mutt, I'm encouraged that it has come
some way to supporting Japanese by itself.
