I tried.
Ok, font names are correctly displayed in the preference dialog.

But, despite of selecting Japanese font,
editor pane and interaction pane don't display 
Japanese charcaters correctly.  They only display squares.

When I selected "FixedSys", Japanese displays correctly
in the editor pane. But when I selected "MS Gothic" (of Japanese font name)
editor pane displays squares.

Moreover, DrScheme on Windows XP behaves somewhat differencetly
from one on Windows 2000.  On Windows XP, selecting Japanese font
displays correctly in both edtir pane and interaction pane.
But characters are displayed with different fonts mixed.
(Since I don't have Windows XP now, I will report this problem later)
