Ah, right you are.  I was taking the name from what I could see in
libreoffice writer, I think that name started NotoSans but in fc-list
I can see (all on one line)
/usr/share/fonts/Noto/NotoSansCJKjp-Regular.otf: Noto Sans CJK JP,Noto Sans CJK JP Regular:style=Regular

And with \newfontfamily{\japanese}{Noto Sans CJK JP} it does indeed
work.  So, I guess that was a variation of "I can't find this font."
