Adjust your system language settings. Proper file name conventions require a consistent Unicode environment, so install the respective foreign language support files or switch the language system-wide. Mixing different zones/ code ranges is always a bad idea. If your system is not in Japanese, AE will always misinterpret the characters and refuse to import. If that's not feasible, simply rename the files.
Thanks for the tips :)
After few trials & errors, I found out exactly what kind of setting is required.
Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Advanced -> Language for non-Unicode programs: choose the language you need (English, Japanese, etc)
After i change it to Japanese, AE is able to recognize *** filename / filepath
Yupp, should do the trick. Glad you could solve the mystery. ;-)
