I'm not sure.  It's not wrong that fontconfig decides that
the font support Japanese.  Perhaps, the problem should be
reported to the font developper not to include ungly glyphs
in a font.  Fontconfig can't know how ugly glyphs are.

By the eay, I'm not familiar with fontconfig's configulation
file, but aren't their a way to customize fontconfig to
refuse that font as a Japanese font?
