Heard a guy interview there , they ask him what he thought about living in Japan , he said him and his family would love too , they responded family ? And then said no thank you .

As it would cost the company more money to hire one with family and pay for all the extra living cost such as school and what not .

I tried this route. Bear in mind Japanese medical standards are much stricter. I have a waiver for a special issuance medical in the US.
In Japan, they would never give me a waiver for my condition

The OP/recruiter addressed the issue of 'kids' so you're saying they do NOT want pilots with families? I'd love to hear a response from OP...

I was wondering if it is an automatic denial in the expat realm to have a special issuance?

They like Captains who want to relocate their family... Yes extra cost but now there is an anchor... Not as quick to pull chocks and go some place else... Plus with the non-commuting contract makes scheduling easier...

The fact is one can live in the area without any harm. There are higher levels of background radiation in certain parts of the US than there are in parts of the exclusion zone.

The Japanese are very strict on medical standards. As an expat, if you hold and don't have to convert your certificates I think you're ok as long as you maintain a US medical and US certificates. It's when you have to convert and get a Japanese medical is when it gets difficult
