Japanese will be exported as extended character set (2-bytes per character)

If you have exported to a file then you need to use an editor that will recognise that the file is using extended characters, otherwise the editor will assume 1-byte per character and what you see will look like rubbish.

Also, whatever is doing the export needs to output as extended characters.

In SQL you need to use Nvarchar (2 bytes per character) to hold the extended Japanese characters. If at any point they are converted to Varchar (1-byte per character) then the result will be rubbish
