its taken me so long to realise, but this is actually like "what if japanese people came to the west and fetishized parts of our culture as much as we do theirs".

Are you serious? You realize that the "cultural appropriation" stuff that makes you clutch at your pearls.. treating a little kid in a mulan costume for halloween or some white dude with dreadlocks as if they were just taking a dump on peoples' graves... ...you realize that in many non-anglophone regions of the world, that's still considered amusing and benign, right? And that Japan is like the world HQ for what you would call "cultural appropriation"? If you get professionally offended, then Japan is not for you, because the concepts you're talking about don't carry any weight over there. On the other hand, if you like exploring silly and outrageous ideas without other adults scolding you like a kindergartner for it, then it might just be a good match.

This is parodying a sub culture- Calling Decora 'Japanese' is like calling Emo 'North American.' Anyone can dress up in that style and mimic the persona, it doesn't matter where you're from! A lot of people all around the world identify with Japanese sub cultures like Lolita, Gyaru, Harajuku etc :)
