It's worth noting that NPB did change, or at least standardize, their ball in 2011. IIRC the NPB ball was historically smaller than MLB's, and the slightly larger one resulted in their 2011-2012 mini dead ball era. A return to the old ball may very well be culprit for the power uptick.
Former Los Angeles Dodgers president Peter O’Malley was in Tokyo on Saturday morning to celebrate the opening of a special exhibition of Dodgers memorabilia at the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame.
O’Malley and NPB commissioner Ryozo Kato were among those who participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the exhibition, “Baseball in Japan and the O’Malley Family: A Lasting Friendship,” which features a number of items that highlight the relationship between the O’Malley family, the Dodgers and Japan.
