Looks like the ja_JP locale.alias entry is redundant when a Windows
entry also exists:

$ cmd /c ver
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]
$ uname -svrmo
CYGWIN_NT-10.0 2.8.0(0.309/5/3) 2017-04-01 20:47 x86_64 Cygwin
$ locale --version
locale (cygwin) 2.8.0
$ locale -av | fgrep ja_JP
locale: ja_JP           archive: /usr/share/locale/locale.alias
locale: ja_JP           archive: /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/System32/KERNEL32.DLL
locale: ja_JP.utf8      archive: /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/System32/KERNEL32.DLL
locale: ja_JP.ujis      archive: /usr/share/locale/locale.alias
locale: ja_JP@cjknarrow archive: /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/System32/KERNEL32.DLL
locale: ja_JP.utf8@cjknarrow archive:
$ fgrep ja_JP /usr/share/locale/locale.alias
japanese        ja_JP.eucJP
japanese.euc    ja_JP.eucJP
ja_JP           ja_JP.eucJP
ja_JP.ujis      ja_JP.eucJP
japanese.sjis   ja_JP.SJIS

Same results on Cygwin32.
