Thanks to both of you for your suggestions regarding the cigars which, as 
you might have guessed, are more important to me than Filemaker.

There is an application (fmpro migrator) that examines Filemaker databases
and spews perl to migrate them to other databases (mysql, Oracle).  It's
spendy (US$100), and I'm not sure how it will handle shift-jis encoded
data, but it is a start.
