Look at the Top 100 Best Sellers on Kindle Japan and it is devoid of the popular genre fiction mentioned above.
There was genre fiction in the top 10 (!) since the beginning. One SF book (Gene Mapper) made into the top ten in the Best kindle books 2012 (in the literature category, more than half of the books were genre works.)

One of the two recent Japan SF Price winners are already available as an ebook (盤上の夜 ).

To list them up by genre, you should select a genre novel, check it's ranking, and from there you can find the link for the selling rank for each category.

For example, Scifi/fantasy/horror.

Yes, the selection is still too small, and it is frustrating, but publishers and readers are still experimenting with the format.

Plus, since most of the early ebook adapters are already using other sites, both Amazon and Kobo had to enter to a market where they have to win over potential customers from other bookshops.
