While the situation in Croatia is dire, in the article As Europe makes room for refugees, some in Japan ask: Why not us?
the question is not what to do in the middle east but what japan can do for them. Japan, always being closer to a closed door policy, is not usually the first country you think of when it comes to world aide. Despite this Japan is currently the number two donor to the middle eastern crisis but they are still left asking, "Can we do more?". While it may not be there problem they do believe that they should help these refugees. Personally, I don't believe a country should worry about something that truly doesn't have any effect on them since, at some point, it becomes a competition for hospitality.
