The Japanese Navy's Type 97 E class machine gun was a direct copy of the Vickers ACMG Mk. II.
The Japanese Army had the Type 89, which was also a copy of the E class Vickers.
Both of the above were used as fixed armament on aircraft.
The Japanese Army also had a flexible mount machine gun called the Type 89, which I believe fired the rimmed version. I don't know if this was a copy of the Lewis or not, but I don't think that it was.
