The C$ stuff is not Japanese share names.  All NT partictions (drive 
letters) have administrative shares that use that notation.  C$ is c:\ etc.
Try this

mount_smbfs //NTusername at servername/sharename /(some directory on the 
bsd box you want to mount to), and see what happens.  If it errors out 
you'll have a log file to start backtracking the error.
