Switch on TV and it's very hard to find anything non-Japanese at all.

I have to disagree, insofar as there's currently a strong Japanese obsession with Korean popular culture right now (dramas, variety shows, music, food, etc.). To an outsider, it may not look like imported foreign culture, but it definitely is.

Perhaps it's a sign that Japan is re-asserting its Asian-ness. The foreign influences the Japanese are choosing to absorb these days, perhaps, are from their neighbors.
