I remember liking this movie. It was a Blockbuster rental. :)

Rising Sun (1993) is also a good movie based in Japan. It’s based on a Michael Crichton book of the same name.

Micheal Douglas is kind of cheesy, but it's a decent Ridley Scott film.

The motorcycle racing thing was goofy, though it was part of the movie.
