The reason is that Debian and Ubuntu don't package poppler-data
( that
contains the necessary CMap etc files. This information is also contained
in xpdf-japanese, but installed in a place where evince (or rather poppler)
doesn't look for it.
I got evince to display your example pdf by unpacking the above tarball
into /usr/share and renaming the toplevel directory to "poppler".
