Any POS implementation case using PosBox in China?

I would like to know if there been any POS implementation case using PosBox in China.  Our client in Japan has purchased a PosBox for their POS implementation, and it just turned out that the receipt does not print Kanji (Chinese characters).  Other Japanese characters (Hiragana and Katakana) are converted into single-byte version of Katakana on the printed receipt.


So, I guess PosBox currently does not support doube-byte characters.


I would like to know if this understanding is correct and if there is any quick workaround for this (I am not used to working with RPi images).  My question is directed more towards people who work in China/Chinese market as I think there must be some preceding cases with the same problem.


Appreciate any input on this.


Thanks and regards,
