Answer:

No. Japanese companies are active across the globe, with factories and branch offices in many overseas countries. As these companies increasingly localise some of their manufacturing and sales operations it makes sense for them to list on the local markets. The benefits of doing so include increased public profile in that country, increased liquidity, and greater ease in issuing corporate bonds.
