I'm going to do that too! I'm suspecting thats the reason why my game doesn't work since my system locale is also set to Japanese!
To change your system locale: (I am on Windows 7)
You go to the following
- Control Panel
- Clock, Language, and Region
- Click "Change the date, time, or number format" under "Region and Language"
- A menu should show up, click the last tab "Administrative"
- Click "change system locale"
I manually changed my system locale to Japan/Japanese beforehand (was playing other games), usually your system locale's default should be to English/USA so this solution may or may not work for you. Also when you change your system locale you will need to restart your system.
Hope this helps!

Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
