Depends. Russia has a massive military, is the largest country in the world and has influences over the former USSR countries, however Japan has the superior technology, economy, human rights, and foreign relations. Whilst Japan relies on the more technical and modern side of today to be influencial, Russia relies on the fact it has a large military. So, both have their strong points and it's up to you to decide which strong points matter more.
