Sadly, there aren't enough Japanese-only speakers to warrant a whole section!

If you're in Japan or just want to chat with Japanese-speaking bitcoiners, join the Tokyo Bitcoin Group on Facebook.

Japan has a huge population and Satoshi (might be japanese). I'm surprised there aren't many japanese people here, whereas german russian spanish and chinese sections are pretty big.

Not enough Japanese are interested in Bitcoin (yet). Quasi-mainstream awareness in Japan started about a month ago with the Gigazine article. If there's a giant bubble starting now, it could grow into a full-on craze, but otherwise it may take a while. When Japan does enter, it will enter BIG.

Japan is very safe (no fear of break-ins), no large banks have defaulted recently [ever?] (no fear of losing your pension/savings), and Japanese people never need to move money outside Japan (bank transfers complete within an hour, and only cost $3).

All of the fears and needs that are driving interest in Bitcoin hardly exist in Japan, so no one has yet seen the need to explore it.  Undecided
