You were not charged is that correct, was a police caution given.
As far as travelling to Japan. Japanese Ministry of Justice has interpreted the restrictions imposed by Japan’s Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act to bar entry to anyone sentenced to more than a year in prison, and anyone convicted of a drug offense, felony or misdemeanor, no matter how dated or minor. conviction.
Therefore, as no conviction you are fine for Japan.
The USA is different. Even though you have no conviction. You could be refused entry at the boarder if you travelled under the ESTA visa waiver system. The US embassy recommends anyone with a caution to play safe an apply for a travel visa to enter the country. As a tourist, that would be a B1/B2 visa. You apply for that in London.
