Also, if we’re talking about a Web page
the developer(s) of the page need to be using the language
attribute correctly. Just having the page being written or
displayed in the Japanese language won’t switch the synth
language to Japanese if English is still being used as the
default or primary language.
Of course, if the synth has been set to
Japanese and if it’s still not speaking correctly then this
is a bit outside of my wheelhouse.

Do you have automatic language switching
turned on in Speech settings?
Also, and this is not meant as snarky, are you certain you
are using Espeak as your synth? I'd also suggest, once
you're certain that automatic language switching is turned
on in NVDA, that you give the Microsoft OneCore Japanese a
try, if for no other reason than testing. It does support
text to speech.
