This seems like a no-brainer. Domiciles in Japan typically don't have the kind of space Kinect requires. I can't imagine all that furniture rearranging is good for the feng shui anyways.

People might also be ashamed to dance around in public. Michael Scott says "In Japan, you must always commit suicide to avoid embarrassment."
