Folder disappears in SAS EG or Studio,if its contains files containing japan characters in its name

Simple solution: do NOT use special characters in path/file names. Use the 26 characters from the western alphabet, digits and underlines.

If you receive "funny" files, rename them on receiving to something sensible.

Are you using SAS with ENCODING=UTF8?  Your SAS session needs to be using an encoding that can present these characters.  And what version of SAS?  Later versions (SAS 9.4) have better support for these scenarios.
