Wright came back from a trip to Japan in 1905. We have looked into his designs after that trip and they have clearly been influenced by what he saw on that trip. While he ackowledged that Japanaese architceture was not compatible with Western architecture, he did adapt many concepts of open spaces and simplicity to an even greater extent than he did before he went to Japan. He also utilized Japanese style of decoration in his designs.
Check out Wright's Burton J. Westcott house in Springfield, Ohio. Many people can clearly see the Japanese/Shinto temple influence in its design.
