Are there differences between Eastern style websites as opposed to Western style sites?

I am looking for a reference that lists the differences in web design between Eastern websites as opposed to Western sites. I've seen that many Japanese and Chinese sites have company profile information that includes the name of the president, number of employees, map, founded date that's very different from the About Us pages on American/European sites. Also I understand that Japanese/Chinese sites are a bit more compact in design because the characters of their language allows them to be, but is there any reference online or am I just imagining this?
I just want to make sure our Japanese customers feel like the site is local though we are a global company.. make sense?
Thanks for your help!
