Look at the man pages for etc/timezone.  The default timezone is set for
Berkely California (surprise, surprise :-)).

Once the timezone is set correctly you use local 24 hour time with the date
command and the kernel will offset that value to GMT for internal use.

Ignoring complications like Daylight Savings Time I think Japan should have
a bias of +7 hours.
