    I can suggest two selections for any musical atttempt to address
    the subject from an genuinely American perspective:

    The absolute New York classic:
    Japanese Sandman by the Cellos
    (rang tang ding dong raki saki)

    and of course no musical treatse on Japan is complete without
    the work of Prof. Wanda Jackson who delivered a major discourse
    on Japanese culture in Compton Calif in 1962:

    Under the title; “Fujiyama Mama”-

    many wonderful treatments of this most central discourse
    on Japanese culture are currently on you tube

    (all in fun…sometimes, a little humor helps…..)
