I don't think so because OVB-NRT is not their longest flight and there is (yet) no Zone 5. I don't think the price diffirence between the intertnational and domestic flights of the same distance... as you know it's all about demand and purchasing power of the pax, rather than the actual cost base in the airline industry.

7 hours on A320? I do DME-OVB-HKG (OVB-HKG is actually only 400km longer than OVB-NRT) and I don't find it less comfortable than flying widebody...but then again, I am talking about Y... I agree in J it would be much nicer to fly a widebody...prefferably with lie-flat beds.
