This is a problem related to the IPAexfont used for rendering the 
Japanese PDF guide. That peoblem was already discussed [1] but we don't 
find a solution
At the moment the best way to have a readable PDF version of the 
Japanese guide is to compile the gnucash-docs branch using the 
--with-japanese-fontdir=DIR option at configure time
