In brief: No
People from okinawa are the longest living people in the world.
Their diet is not the typical japanese diet.

In brief: ?
Reportedly okinawans have the longest lives.
Okinawa was under the control of china, japan and the us at different times. Having lived there - some stick to a traditional japanese diet. Some have adopted a number of western foods as well as chinese foods. What is clear is that a diet high in vegetables and fish with little "junk food" can be beneficial.
