To reiterate: as far as I know, it is not possible to set the font for
Japanese only in texinfo[.tex].  Thus the ja font, wherever it is
specified, would be used for every character.  That sounds like just
shunting the problem off in another direction, not actually solving it.

Really solving it is not a trivial matter and there is no simple
dozen-line patch that will overcome it.

Well, they *could* be.  We could choose a font with CJK support and make
the definitions in texinfo.tex just as we define existing chars.  In
principle it is possible to make definitions for any and all Unicode
characters in texinfo.tex.  -k
