I do not have a Japanese Spitz, but I used to have a Samoyed, and from the pictures, they look to have a similiar coat type.  So be prepared for LOTS of shedding a couple times of year when they blow coat.

 

Not sure where you are from, but from what I can tell, these are not a breed recognized by the AKC at this time, which means it could be difficult to find a reputable breeder if you are in the US.  The US “breed club” website also leaves a lot to be desired.  They do appear to be slightly more available in the UK, so if you live there, it may be easier to find a good breeder or rescue, (though because they are a rarer breed, it may be hard to find any available in rescue).

The above two websites are breed clubs.  Both have a little bit of information on the breed as well.
