Default Looking for that Japanese flavor

There's a specific type of jazz that I love. Hiroshima is a good example of what I'm talking about. In the past I heard many tracks with that Japanese flavor but I have no idea what to ask for. It's mostly instramental music I'm talking about .
Can anyone point me in the right direction as to other groups who have similar flavor to Hiroshima?

Not heard of Hiroshima, but Soil & "Pimp" Sessions are from Japan and they do some awesome instrumental jazz. Worth checking out!

I'd say check out Michael Luckner and his Guitar Tokyo album.

I feel like I should have some suggestions to make, but for the moment I'm just going to flesh out the rec for Michael Luckner's album with this:-



^ Not bad for "Sunday morning when contemplation is best" as Van Morrison says on Hindford Street.

^ This is a pretty cool track imo, although whatever may sound Japanese about it has vanished by the time the trumpet comes in....

^ Love the intense piano playing on this, Janszoon, plus all those bass notes.

Here's something more mellow, though it does warm up towards the end:-

Not really jazz, but more along the lines of math rock flavored instrumentals, LITE is one fine noise making unit:
