Answer
The answer is, yes, there are rainforests in Japan.
We've been doing some foliage research on the rainforests of Japan.

The jungle type subtropical/tropical rainforests are found on the Ogasawara Islands and the Nansei Shoto Archipelago, the numerous volcanic/coral islands lying in a chain between southern Japan and Taiwan. WWF calls those islands "the Galapagos of the western Pacific".

Large subtropical/tropical rainforests are found on Chichijima Island, Hahajima Island, Yakushima Island, Amami-Oshima Island, northern part of Okinawa main island, Ishigaki Island and Iriomote Island (largest).

The evergreen temperate rainforests are seen on Shikoku, southern Kyushu, the Pacific Ocean-facing peninsulas of Honshu and the Izu islands. Those temperate rainforests look less "jungle" since you rarely see the typical jungle vegetation such as tree fern or banyan tree (which are common in the subtropical/tropical rainforests of Japan).

If you search for "rainforest Japan" on www.Flickr.com, there are many images from those places.

Japan is 68.2% covered in forests, which is one of the world's highest forest cover rates (higher than Brazil).
The forest types in Japan are: 54% subtropical, 36% temperate, rest are boreal (Northern Hokkaido) and tropical (Yaeyama Islands).
http://rainforests.mongabay.com/deforestation/2000/Japan.htm

Japan's deforestation rate is low. Japan has lost 0.8% of its forest between 1990-2005.

Btw, there is not much bamboo in the rainforests of Japan (and pandas don't live in Japan).
