RenderAs PDF causes Japanese characters to not be displayed...

I use this code...

<apex:repeat value="{!IF(vp,$ObjectType.Standing_Request__c.FieldSets.LILLY_QR_VP_SR,IF(team== 'OL',$ObjectType.Standing_Request__c.FieldSets.LILLY_QR_OL_SR,$ObjectType.Standing_Request__c.FieldSets.LILLY_QR_ML_SR))}" var="f">
                        <tr><td class="label"><apex:outputText value="{!f.label}"/></td>
                        <td><apex:outputField value="{!obj[f]}"/></td></tr>


To generate a table.  Some of the fields I am using have Japanese characters as their names.  If I use the renderAs="PDF" parameter on the page the Japanese characters simply display as a '_'.  If I remove the renderAs="PDF" then it displays properly.  Does anyone know a way to get the characters to properly display with in the PDF?  

Thanks in advance for any help.

By simply adding...

body { font-family: Arial Unicode MS; }

to the style section it resolved my issue.
