Soundtracks. Movies, anime, video games... sure, "the west" has the occasional prodigy (think Elmer Bernstein, Howard Shore, John Williams...) but most it produces still is watery junk or "ambient scores" (read: somebody holds a key on a pad synthesizer) and Japan wins by sheer numbers of awesome stuff if nothing else.

Also, I tend to like J-Trance more than its western counterparts, but I'd be more willing to recognize that as a matter of personal preference.
