depending on the encoding you use, those japanese characters are using a specific range of values (each value represents a character)
you could write a user function which remove the characters with those values, or you could try to use an existing function such as replace and translate
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/db2luw/v9/topic/com.ibm.db2.udb.admin.doc/doc/r0000862.htm?resultof=%22%74%72%61%6e%73%6c%61%74%65%22%20%22%74%72%61%6e%73%6c%61%74%22%20

which works on the characters and not their numeric values (might be easier)

using translate will be the simplest solution,
something like


select translate(column_to_be_translated, '', 'all your japanese characters come here')

this will translate all the japanese characters to spaces,
then

select replace(translate(column_to_be_translated, '', 'all your japanese characters come here'), ' ', '')
 

will remove those spaces
