Is Japanese food overrated?

I'm Japanese-American so I think the ultra-strict mods should let this post stand.

I don't get the hoopla about Japanese food.

The main flavors are soy sauce, dashi, salt, sugar, mirin, miso, and a little ginger.

I acknowledge that they use a variety of demonstrated in a good kaiseki. And their plating and sense of esthetics is superb.

However, the taste....

Please discuss.
