Sorry i'm a bit late on this. Maybe it is still useful:

I suspect that [Ctrl]+[Space] is switching which input method you are 
using. On my system, i have 2 input methods available: "Anthy" and 
"Direct". Once you have selected the input method that is capable of 
Japanese, then you have to switch input mode. I have my system 
configured with 3 input modes that i can cycle between: "Direct input", 
"Hiragana", and "Katakana".

It is possible that my use of the terms "input method" and "input mode" 
are specific to Anthy; other input methods may use slightly different 
terminology. But, you probably want to look for something along those 
lines and set your default input method to not be direct input. Then you 
shouldn't have to hit [Ctrl]+[Space] anymore. You might also be able to 
change the key bindings to be more to your liking; i have my machine set 
up to use [logo]+[space] since the logo key is not (by default) used for 
much on a Linux box and thus does not conflict with other software.
