Need help identifying motorcycle

I have this photo taken in the late '50s in Japan of a bike. Can anyone identify what it it is. The tank badge almost looks like a honda.

I know it's not the same bike, but the one I posted has a similar badge. The bike I posted is a 1954 Honda Benly J. I can't identify the bike in the OP
