In most (all?) cases the cotton isn't Japanese. The companies are using cotton from Zimbabwe, Texas, etc...

that link doesn't really tell me anything after i click the japanese thread after that. What i really want to know is the quality of the cotton or just why people want that over other cotton?

It's more like certain features of said c otton versus the 'quality.' Single crop, short fiber, etc.

Here's an article about Sea Island Cotton, a well known top of the line material. Long staple cotton is softer, the texture gives it a nicer feel on the hand. Zimbabwean and Egyptian cotton also has a long staple. Varying qualities are often linked to growing conditions & environment. Obviously a noticeably softer fabric that can only be batched in small quantities is going to cost a ton of money and those costs multiply through production, wholesale, and retail.
