It is because the terminal emulator uses `fixed' fonts, isn't it?

I tried `emacs -q' and realized what you meant.  That's too bad.
But it is because you (or Emacs?) use proportional fonts i.e.,
the width and interval vary by a character.  However, Emacs
assumes that the width of a CJK (wide) character is always twice
of an alphanumeric character AFAIK.
(So, what I do in my system is to make all the fonts be `fixed'.)

Here is a quick hack, it makes only emacs-w3m buffers use `fixed'
