I get the same behavior with Jidanni.  "0xn--116-v08f53c" is the
encoded version of "01月16日" that `w3m-url-transfer-encode-string'
generates.  This is not the essence of the problem, though.

The real cause is that the page in question provides a name
anchor as <a name="#01月16日">, not <a name="01月16日">.  If
there are many of such an illegally encoded html in the world,
we can add a workaround to emacs-w3m.  But I don't think it's
worth doing in the CVS repository.
