I think mainly because it's basically a Japanese movie. Pretty much the whole movie is about the Japanese culture and their sense of family, honor and traditions. Not to mention it's a 3D movie (even though it wasn't shot that way). Finally, it features several popular Japanese actors/models.

And here's an example: The Last Samurai. It earned an astonishing $119 million. Much like The Wolverine, it was set in Japan and relied heavily on the Japanese culture and their traditions.
