For this reason alone, Japan may be perfect for you. They have huge numbers of lonely singles and the childless, the "parasitic single", and many will be quite happy to have a guy (any guy) come along and give them some company and attention. Most will still prefer their own people, but preferences aren't universal and there's always going to be a few who like you.
They are conservative so unlikely to want children before marriage, and when they don't want marriage and you don't want either, that means no children. They also have no great qualms about birth control or even abortion, having a much more pragmatic view of them. So yes, for your specific needs it may be ideal, although most women will be very picky, very career driven and serious and you need to be able to offer certain interesting or desirable qualities to attract them.
My younger brother is actually studying medicine in Japan right now so here are my comments:
1- Japan is an awesome place if you are an introverted person and prefer non-committal relationships, as strange as it seems.
2- If you show real interest in learning the language and mixing with the people they will L-O-O-O-O-V-E you. Don't say you wanna learn the language because you like anime though. Don't even mention you like anime. Its okay if you say you are into manga, however.
3- I disagree about having good chance with scoring with the girls simply because there are herbivore men there. Because you will encounter plenty of their female counterparts = herbivore women. Or hardcore careerists who only go for host clubs for their male interaction fix (and even so they still don't really sleep with them. Just chit-chat).
4- Get used to eating relatively flavorless and bland foods, but on the plus side enjoy losing weight from eating those.
