I did a superstore search (see below). For an Asian-inspired album, I think it would be really important to have a lot of white space and a clean look. Simple, yet elegant. Minimal embellishments, very few photos to a page.
You can probably find some great inspiration doing a search in the gallery. You can probably also find great stuff by checking out some Japanese art books from the library. The paintings, etc. in there could be springboards for your work.
Good luck. Post when you're done!!
