I forgot to say one to you. IIRC CMap for Japanese are:
-H      horizontal writing for JIS
-V      vertical writing for JIS
-EUC-H  horizontal writing for EUC-JP
-EUC-V  vertical writing for EUC-JP
-RKSJ-H horizontal writing for Shift_JIS
-RKSJ-V vertical writing for Shift_JIS

and so on. I mean Dia shouldn't specifies them as the font
name. I recommend you see Adobe's PostScript Reference
Manual for more details.

Yes, that's well-known problem. I hope embedded font by
freetype will be fixed this problem because a lot of people
are interested to Japanese and they may have no Japanese
