Not able to open MS Office files on SharePoint sites with Japanese Unser Interface

This is a newly reported issue specially SharePoint sites with Japanese user interface. Users are not able to open MS Office files from MOSS Sharepoint sites.
IN order to fix this, you have to make a small change on the internet explorer settings.

Go to tools->Internet options-Advanced and select "Always Send URLs as UTF-8" close the browser and open it again and then try accessing the file
This will fix the issue.
