Confirming the problem for https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/メインページ

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/メインページ?uselang=en shows no issues though, neither does using ?forceprofile=true.

I tried https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/メインページ?action=purge but so far it hasn't helped.

This is currently being discussed in #wikimedia-operations, as more sites seem to be affected:

<MaxSem> awww
now other wikis also report problems

2013-10-19 07:53:22 mw1208 enwiki: Pool queue is full
<mark> we can perhaps increase the queue size a bit, see what that does
<MaxSem> however, looking in archive, yesterday's log was more than twice as long as the day before it

https://ja.wikipedia.org/ main page seems to work for me now.

See https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Server_admin_log for Jan 13, 2014:

13:46 logmsgbot: mark updated /a/common to I0442878ea: Raise ArticleView pool size by 50%
12:47 akosiaris: started poolcounter on potassium
12:46 mutante: starting poolcounter on heloum
12:45 MaxSem: that was https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59993
