Have you ever listened to Oreskaband? They're probably my favorite Japanese ska band.

Bomb the Music Industry!, The Arrogant Sons of Bitches,

"Bomb the Music Industry! plays a blend of several musical styles anchored in ska and hardcore punk. They're often compared to bands from previous waves of ska such as the Blue Meanies, Fishbone, and Big D and the Kids Table[citation needed], each an example of a band that blended a range of influences and experimental effects onto the ska framework common in each band's respective era.

The influences go deeper than ska and punk, however, as studio experimentation, synth-pop, and DC hardcore all pop up in the mix. Rosenstock says bands such as Harvey Danger and Neutral Milk Hotel are as much an influence as evidenced by tracks such as "This Graceless Planet" (an adaptation of a song by We Versus The Shark into the musical aesthetic of Bomb the Music Industry!), "Stand There Until You're Sober", and many other songs' meter experiments (which feature, respectively, jarring synth breakouts, backwards looping, and time signatures such as 23/4). In live performances the band has begun using digital technology to create breakdowns that sound like they are lifted from 8-bit video games. Tracks such as "Sweet Home Cananada" and "Future 86" strip down the arrangements to barebones loops and guitar, with the latter (a previously unreleased Arrogant Sons of Bitches demo) featuring a full brass section but lacking the upstroke rhythms on the guitar, a key element of third-wave ska."

Giving the Flaming Tsunamis a second listen, I really like them even though their Ska elements aren't as strong as the hard core and the various other ones...Geez, what a mutt of an album

No Doubt had some pretty decent ska tunes before they decided to lose their roots and go with what was popular on the music scene.

To me that sort of thing is just pop music and nowhere near what I look for in Ska personally, but they could serve as a good entry band for people wanting to get into the scene I should imagine.
