Japanese whiskey

I could not find any other posts about this and I have no experience with this spirit. I do like scotch (blends and single malts) but prefer American whiskey/bourbon like Knob Creek, Maker's, Van Winkle etc...

That said, what do Japanese whiskeys bring to the table? Are there any noteworthy brands that you have tried (Suntory, Nikka, Yamzaki, Hakushu, Karuizawa etc...)? Are these spirits trying to resemble scotch, American whiskey or both? Would it be worth going out of my way to find any particular bottling?

Thanks in advance.
