Right clicking on a file that has a Japanese name and selecting "send to mail recipient" garbles the file name.  This happens on multiple Windows 7 Ultimate PCs that are using English, but have the Japanese language/keyboard installed.

It is not that it does not appear in the new email window that pops up, it is just that it does not have the correct name.  The file will even open, it is just the multi-byte name that gets garbled.  (see screenshot)

I've duplicated this issue on a different PC.

The screenshot looks like the email encoding is set to text-only in ASCII. You won't be able to type Japanese into that body for sure.
Switch to HTML as default.

Thanks!  I used this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/234487 which explains that the default "send to recipient" always produces a plaint text email.  It also explains how to create a new send-to shortcut to outlook.exe with an /a which will bring up your defaults.

 Using this new shortcut, I now get an HTML email and an attachment with a non garbled name.
