But it does exist according to your structure above?
Are you sure you entered the data in the merge dialog fields correctly?

The 'create patch' feature only works for text files. Binary files are
excluded in the patchfiles.

But you can:
* use the repository browser, go to the new files, right click on them,
then choose "copy to wc" from the context menu
* copy the files by hand (but you'll loose the history)
* show log on /trunk/JP, select the revisions which you want to merge,
right-click, choose "merge to..." from the context menu, then select
your working copy folder of /trunk/US
