Usually, in  both Open and Libre, there's Tools, Options and Language
Settings under Options.  If you click Languages, there's an otion to add
Asian language support. I don't have that kubuntu install anymore, I just
set it up briefly as test.  However, looking at a Lubuntu Raring
installation, running libreoffice, also, I go Tools=>Options and
see Language Settings. and click Languages, if I then click Show UI
elements for East Asian writings, I have an option to choose Japanese as
the default Asian language. 

Heh, and I see that I can't get Japanese working with it right now.  It's
amusing that such an in theory user friendly Linux can't get this right
while it's easy to do in FreeBSD.
