I don't know a thing about Japanese or Chinese, but, if I understood  
well, the problem in this thread is producing, with TeX, PDF files  
including characters from these languages. Have you had a look at XeTeX  
<http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php? 
site_id=nrsi&item_id=xetex>? Judging by the screenshots at this page,  
in particular  
<http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/render_graphic.php? 
site_id=nrsi&type=graphic_in_html&title=Popup&filename=../sites/nrsi/ 
media/xetex_sorting.png>, XeTeX might offer a solution. It has  
currently better support for plain TeX than LaTeX, but it's progressing  
very rapidly towards LaTeX compatibility. Just today, for example, a  
new release was produced that adds preliminary support for hyperref.  
There's also a dedicated mailing list  
<http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/xetex>.

HTH,
