To you, is there a difference between the terms " -influenced" versus " -fusion"?

What is the difference for you between, for example, "Japanese-influenced" and "Japanese-fusion" when used to describe a dish or restaurant?

Is one more Japanese-y than the other? If so, which one?

Is one less cringe-worthy and hackneyed than the other?

Staying with the Japanese example, would a BBQ pulled pork sandwich with teriyaki sauce and bonito flakes be Japanese-influenced or Japanese-fusion?

All thoughts appreciated.
