Odd Japanese Characters in Date field

I have noticed that Japanese characters display in the attribute table for a date field ([EventDate]) if the date is 1/1/1600 or earlier.  This is a point feature class for event locations in the USA.

See attached screen shot.

Is this a known bug or is there a date limitation?
