Re: Is japanese wii compatible with english wii fit?
No it does not. You can't play European games either for that matter, only Japanese games. However there is a way around it, though it's a bit complicated and you'll need Zelda Twilight Princess (japanese version in your case) and an SD card.
Information can be found here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack#Download (used to install the Wii Homebrew Channel) and used in combination with this: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_Channel/Help (Wii hombrew channel install files) and finally this: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/GeckoOS (homebrew application allowing you to play games from other regions)
If you need any help I'll walk you through it. This isn't endorsed by Nintendo whatsoever. No warranty on this at all. I have done it myself and there have been no adverse effects.

Synching can be completed only if a compatible game disc is running in the console. Compatible game discs (such as Wii Fit) will display the Wii Balance Board icon on their packaging. The Wii Balance Board must be synced to each compatible game individually. These sync settings will be saved even after the console is turned off.
Follow these directions to sync the Wii Balance Board (so that it is recognized by the Wii console):
Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc (such as Wii Fit) in the Wii console.
Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking.
Press and release the SYNC button on the console while the Power LED on the board is still blinking.
The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete.
i have this problem too sometimes when buying new discs so the only thing i do is buy a new disk or if theres a warranty on the disk, then mabey u can call customer support. theres a phone number on the back of the case and they outta let u swap copies of the disk. but what i do, is i have a lotta money, so i just go buy a new disc and that usually works
Your laser reader inside of the Wii is either dirty or needs to be replaced. Try cleaning it with the following wet lens cleaner (NEVER use dry cleaners on Video Game Systems - it can ruin the laser). If this doesn't help, your laser or DVD drive inside of the Wii may need to be replaced. The same website sells the parts if you need it -- but if the disc is reading them stopping, it may just be a dirty laser lens:
I know it's been a while since you have posted and have prob already figured it out. But just in case this may help someone else. Try turning off your wii and unplugging from the power source for a few minutes. The plug back in and turn on. At the initial warning screen press and hold the sync button on the wii console for about 4 sec. You will have to resync your wii remotes. Next make sure the disc for the game you are going to use the balance board with is in the system and start the game. Then try to sync the balance board.
