This aircraft seems to be steadily gaining new customers:

There is the P-8 and the Kawasaki P-1. What else is there in that class?

There are a few wannabe's on smaller airframes and Japan would be happy to sell their new flying boat as a ASW patrol aircraft as well.

Not sure how this would compare with the P-8, but SAAB has their Swordfish MPA:

SAAB provides the mission system . The two aircraft models available at the moment are the Bombardier Q400 and Global 6000. No customers yet AFAIK.

It seems exceedingly unlikely that the ROK would buy a Japanese product. That said, the P-8 seems like a lot of aircraft for their range needs.

The P-1 has a similar radius, so a bit much as well it seems. But there is not much else on the market at the moment and a modern MPA would cost too much for south korea to develop themselves.

I sometimes think their navy is more intended to reinforce The ROKs image as a player on the World stage than to fight the North.

Just as unlikely that Japan and Japanese would want to sell to Korea and Koreans, if the rise of Samsung and Hyundai at the expense of Sony and Toyota is any indication.

Has Japan sold a weapon system or platform designed to be equipped with one to anyone yet?

None of any consequence that I am aware of, unfortunately. The collapse of the $40 billion Soryu-class deal to Australia left Japan and Japanese searching for answers, not to mention possibly gun-shy about the possibility of suffering a similar loss of prestige and face on the world stage again in the near future.

 

Even had Australia chosen Soryu, I would be surprised if Korea and Koreans ever were offered it.

Losing the bid is not 'loss of prestige'.

And a similar loss of prestige in not gaining access to the F-22, despite a superior Japanese product.

I do indeed see it differently, and disagree regarding whether the loss of the Soryu deal resulted in a corresponding loss of Japanese prestige. There was more at stake here than just the economics. Politically, it would have been a tangible example of the benefits to be had from a less-pacifist approach to defence. From an arms export industry perspective, selling a critical technology demonstrator as comprehensive as the Soryu class to a first-world nation would have been an affirmation of Japan's arrival in an export sector that had long been closed to it. 

 

My disappointment at the failure to close would be an understatement.

If it is any consolation I think the Japanese offering was the superior boat.
