Came in here to say the same; I've had awesome spaghetti dishes in a few places in Japan.

Yoshoku is a whole category of food there, dishes that were adopted from foreign cultures and tweaked to suit the Japanese palate or deal with the limited availability of certain ingredients in Japan. AFAIK restaurants that serve yoshoku dishes don't make any pretense of them being authentic "western" dishes; yoshoku is just kind of its own thing, another branch of Japanese food.

FWIW, I had tuna pizza once there. I don't want to have it again.
