Without a specific question I cannot give a specific answer and keep in mind I've only studied Japanese for a few months, but your issue has nothing to do with a different language... a different font would give you the same issue. Perhaps even a different text size (for the visually impaired) would give you this problem as well.

There's no one exact answer, except to remember one core, fundamental of design philosophy between print and the web. The web is live and fluid. Print is not. So in other words you need to design your page in such as way to work in more than one scenario.

If for whatever reason, you switch languages and it causes a line wrap in one language where in English there was none, then your UI layout needs to handle it. In the case where this is not acceptable, then consider having one layout for one language and another for a different language.

Points 6 and 7 in that link talk about this a bit more.
