puddinlegs - I grew up in the Kansai and am still debating with my on whether to sail to Japan and sail around parts of Honshu, Kyushu and down to Okinawa. Few foreigners have reported on what the conditions are like.
The storms in Japan Sea can be impressive indeed, I saw some from the beaches at Tottori and understood why Kublai Khan's two invasion attempts were foiled [aside: the term "Kamikaze" (divine wind) stems from these two failed invasions where storms devastated the Mongol fleets].

Did you cruise around Japan, if so, which parts?
