Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the only Japanese films I remember seeing are Spirited Away and The Audition (1999).  Gruesome in parts but a really chilling horror. I'm glad I watched it with a friend and not on my own.

A wonderful film I saw in the cinema was Ilo Ilo, made in Singapore and set during the Asian financial crisis in 1997. I think I posted here about it after I watched it.

I couldn't find an earlier post of yours on it. Thanks for the recommend, I liked it. All four leads did a good job, and I liked that the director avoided any drastic turn in the story (it was enough to let us feel how precarious their situation is).
