This could be due to the poor reception the Xbox 360 has had in general in the region, or it might be due to many Japanese people living in small, cramped apartments where there isn't enough space for Kinect to work properly.

I guess giving out measuring tape (see picture above) at Kinect kiosks was not the best idea after all.
