I can't say I'm surprised. They saw other parks getting into Japan and someone in marketing convinced a lot of other people to go along with the idea of a Japanese park.

Sort of like when airlines drastically cut their fares to match those of low-cose competitors. The competition isn't taking away market share, they're just expanding the market. It ends up hurting them.
