I've had to open my bags every time I have entered Japan. Sometimes they just look superficially, but I've also been taken to the separate room where I even had to take off my clothes excluding the underwear. I'm a white male in my thirties and I don't generally get singled out to any special checks. I don't even know if they just wave through anybody in Japanese customs. They have huge amounts of customs counters in airports, so they can certainly handle big crowds without having to wave through (at least non-Japanese) people.
