The problem is that Osaka font is used as UI font.
Expected behavior is that Hiragino Gothic font are used as UI font instead of Osaka font.
This problem will be solved by editing officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/VCL.xcu.
Seems like a reasonable request. Presumably the design / l10n teams will need to be consulted to determine how the change (if any) should be made.
For clarity, the two entries in the referenced location mentioning "Osaka" are both in the "ja" locale entries:

don't screw around with the system font selection
After this commit, Hiragino Kaku Gothic font is used as UI font in Japanese locale, and Osaka font isn't used.
In comment 4 a fix was identified, so I’m closing this report. Please don’t hesitate to reopen it if the problem resurfaces in the future.
