Kato san,

TM converts 010_preface.mdown to HTML without hanging at all. I don't  
write much Japanese in TM (only really within latex files written in  
English), but I've never had a problem like that. I also tried adding  
much more Japanese text into the markdown file, and it still worked  
well. Perhaps you're having a problem with fonts. I'm using a font  
similarly modified to this one (http://d.hatena.ne.jp/hetima/ 
20061102/1162435711), along with the plugin hack.
