Internationalisation - Japanese Characters

I am trying to insert Japanese data retrieved from a JSP page having
"shift-jis" charset into an UTF-8 oracle database.
I am using the following code to get the user input from the Form text box
field as follows:
String textboxString = request.getParameter("japaneseText");
String original = new
byte[] JISBytes = original.getBytes("Shift_JIS");
String insertToDB = new String(JISBytes, "UTF8");
The string is then inserted in a UTF-8 database
But when the string is retrieved from the database using Java or Perl code,
the result is seen as junk "Mojibake" characters.
Note : When the data is inserted using a Perl script, the data is inserted
properly and the results are also retrieved properly in Japanese characters.
I would appreciate if someone could throw some pointers on this issue.
