I don't think users should have to read a language reference to know how to 
change a font in their text editor. If that's not a documentation bug then I 
don't know what is.

What I did is search for CJK in the customize interface, then search for 
Japanese, then search the Emacs manual and could not find information relevant 
to my problem which was "I just want to change the default font for Japanese".

Plus, my question was not "at the end of which node in an obscure language 
reference manual can I find an example that allegedly solves my problem" but, 
let me restate it:

>> Is there an understandable tutorial somewhere ?

If you don't have an answer to that, that's fine. I just want to change a font, 
not spend a day reading a reference. The emacs manual doesn't have an answer to 
that. It should.
