* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ninjago}}'' takes place in a fictional Asian-inspired FantasyKitchenSink country populated entirely by Lego minifigures. If anything, it's more like a mish-mash of westernised Japanese culture and other FantasyKitchenSink elements like snake people, pirates and ghosts. Ninjago City in particular is more modern and cyberpunk-ish while still keeping in line with Asian themes.

** The above-mentioned cities are considered "World Project" cities--none of them have any connection with the manhwa ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'' is based upon. Rather, they're a sort of ShoutOut / FanService for specific nationalities which had a huge (and legit) RO player base. Originally a [[TheWildWest wild west-themed]] city was also planned to represent the United States, but was scrapped (the songs "Big Guys Love This" and "Antique Cowboy" were probably written for the town and its surrounding fields). Years later, a Russian-themed city was made in its place (Moscovia).

** There is an island somewhere in the extremely dangerous stretch of ocean known as the New World that's themed on feudal Japan. It's even called "Wa no kuni" (or Wano country in some translations), which was a name given to Japan. Samurai serve as its warriors, and it is one of the few countries that are unaffiliated with the World Government.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''/''Crystal''/''[=HeartGold=]''/''[=SoulSilver=]'': Violet and Ecruteak Cities, specifically based on Nara and Kyoto respectively. Both of the real life cities are former Japanese capitals and are known for their traditional architecture.
** It can be argued that all of the Pokemon world up until ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Black & White]]'' are this to the rest of the planet, since they're direct geographical counterparts to various of Japan (or regions that have been part of Japan in the past, in the case of ''VideoGame/PokemonRanger''). ''Black & White'' was set in a region based off of Manhattan, making it the first American region. ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY X & Y]]'''s region is based off of the top half of France (Specifically, everything north of a line between the Bay of Biscay and the southern end of Switzerland).

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon''[='s=] setting is based on Hawaii, but Malie City has very Japanese architecture, and Konikoni City is basically a Chinatown. Justified, as East Asians are the largest racial group on Hawaii (in fact, the Japanese alone once made up over 40% of Hawaii's population). Additionally, Malie City is stated in-universe to be heavily influenced by the architecture of ''Gold/Silver''[='s=] home region.

* The ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' sourcebook ''GURPS Banestorm'' includes, amongst its many pseudo-European and pseudo-Arabian nations, the nation of Sahud, a definitely Japanese-inspired kingdom with strong Chinese, Korean, and Mongolian elements. This is justified in that, like all of Banestorm's human cultures, Sahud was founded by humans [[MassTeleportation from the very cultures it represents]].
