I guess there is a reason to this, they found there is little use of advanced tank technology if they couldn't land enough of their tanks on the pacific islands in the first place. And conversely, if they could stop their enemies from doing so, they wouldn't need to field much tanks themselves to secure a victory.

If you look to the later vehicles they had some decent research and experiment into what would have been fairly useful against the Russians in mainland Asia. They were of course, much too late.

Certainly, especially mid-to-end WWII. The expected theater of operations (mostly jungle and small islands) probably influenced the lack of interest in advanced/more powerful designs. On the other hand, at the first phase of the war, their strategy and tactics often surprised the enemy with tanks appearing at the least expected places.
