Kanji rendering is still really bad compared to Roman characters - both are being worked on by people better than me, but two down-voted proposals to get traffic light labeling/rendering "fixed" for SE asia shows where the priorities are for OSM/-carto.

Which are all tagged as x=restaurant, not x=レストラン


We all agree on mcdonalds being fast food, right? Yep, as do Japanese people. But so is fried octopus balls (takoyaki). 

The mall near my work has a mcdonalds and a takoyaki stand. Searching for たこやき should bring it up. No problem. 

The most popular fast food in Japan? Ramen. My friend owns japanese pubs (an izakaya) and ramen shops - people love quick ramen. McDonalds is doing badly here now. 

Fast food Iconography? Hamburger. 

Don't confuse searching for an object with how they are sorted/labeled/and represented - nor forget about the inflexibility in OSM/-carto to get them represented differently. (Take-out bag?) Or support regional renderings (buddhist shrines do not use the buddhist wheel in Japan, but thats what they get)
