** 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.

* 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]].
