I do not spot relevant entries either, those lines would have "vfat" 
or "ntfs" as filesystemtype.  Example from my walkman, when mounted
for accessing ascii characters:

/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/walkman type vfat ([..],iocharset=ascii,[..])

When mounted correctly:
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/walkman type vfat ([..],iocharset=utf8,[..])

"type vfat" or "type ntfs" could hint at the windows filesystems.
The first mount is done automatically, for the second I was ex-
plicitly using option "iocharset=utf8".

That filesystem is on the same harddisk?  Can you try to access
the filesystem, so seeing the files without kanji, and directly
after that execute "mount" again?

Still, your issue might be something completely different. :)
