cameron diaz is in the softbank commercial now, and actors dont really come here for movies, japanese actors go to the u.s. watanbe and yukiko both went to cali to film the last samurai, for example.

They went to New Zealand to film The Last Samurai, as 99% of the movie is made there. Though some scenes are from the US.

Yes the Last Samurai was made in NZ although some exterior scenes were filmed in Japan (Kyoto, Himeji) and some interiors in California.

Apparently the shots of Fujisan in the Last Samurai are actually of Mt Taranaki in NZ. :o

You can see some of the quality Japanese ad work done by American and other foreign stars here:
Japander

EDIT: Some of the Nicolas Cage ones are still my favourites
