The Estee Lauder Aeromatte Ultralucent Pressed Powder is probably the best translucent set powder I've ever used. With that said, I haven't tried any Japanese brands yet. I haven't been able to find any interesting ones to date, so I switched camp for now :D
The powder is completely colorless and light, delivering a matte veil that lasts all day. It is not fragranced, at least not that I noticed. I use it only on my oily t-zones (forehead and nose) as the rest of my face is dry. When I do use it all over, I am pleasantly surprised it adapts to my dry-combo skin and doesn't give me dry patches like the Amazing Cosmetics Powderset does. And the compact is rather large, so it took me a whole year to hit the pan!
And because the compact is quite large, it is also way too bulky. I absolutely love this powder, but I think they really need to come up with a better and sleeker design because a square box is just ugly!
