I have always enjoyed the Chinese and Japanese equivalents to Western folk and traditional music in film or in a few isolated instances on the radio - yet numerous searches for information and/or sources of such music have been fruitless. All of the internet radio stations I have found coming from these countries feature terrible pop or Western music exclusively.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? Why is such information so hard to find?

You don't mention if it's explicitly radio stations that you're after, or just general directions. I don't know of any radio stations in that direction, but I've been fortunate enough to find quite a lot of Japanase and especially Chinese music on my local libraries.
One record I wholeheartedly recommend for anyone the least interested in Chinese traditional music is 'Yuan' by the Guo Brothers, distributed by RealWorld (http://www.realworldusa.com/albumpages/guo/default.html). I believe Last.fm has some stuff up for listening.
