If the problem is only when you open the PDF in Adobe Reader, it will be related with fonts and encoding. Take a look at the following thread in the Reader forum: Problems displaying russian characters in Adobe Reader

It deals with Russian characters, not Japanese, but the underlying problem is likely to be the same.

I'm not an expert on Adobe Reader, but I can read Japanese. The X in a box indicates that the font doesn't have the correct glyph for that character.

Japanese is written using a combination of kanji (Chinese characters) and kana (Japanese phonetic symbols). There are more than 2,000 kanji in common use, but many more with specialized uses, including personal names. The final line of your screenshot ends with 行 which means "to". That suggests it's a personal name that uses non-standard kanji.

You might get better help from an expert in the Acrobat Reader forum.
