Will you please read the summary of problems when mailman is used in
Japanese environment:

The problem lies in that while the Japanese characters which are usable
in computers are expanding and most Japanese are using them with
extended JIS (iso-2022-jp) code system but the IANA standard for
iso-2022-jp has stopped at 1980's and Python codec is strict on IANA.

The best solution I believe is to upgrade your mailman to Japanese
adapted mailman and enable 'iso2022jpfix' in mm_cfg.py.
