That and, languages change over time. Just because Japanese has German loanwords in it, that doesn't mean they have to have been added before the Meiji Restoration. New words find their way into Japanese from foreign sources even today, and that's the case for most other languages in the world too.

Except that dutch is pretty widely spoken around indonesia due to colonisation, whereas german is pretty much restricted to europe and south africa.

With than in mind and the protogermanic roots of the dutch language i would agree with eladin that any germanic within japanese is much more likely to be originally dutch.

Also people from germany are deutsch.

You underestimate the influence of german language. For about one century, german was one of the three languages (english and french were the others) that was used for scientific communication. This ended with WWII where english became the dominant speach in scientific written works.

copied from wiki: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wissenschaftssprache
Das Deutsche hatte später - beinahe ein Jahrhundert lang - den Status einer der drei weltweit führenden Wissenschaftssprachen (neben Englisch und vor Französisch), da im 19. Jahrhundert und beginnenden 20. Jahrhundert zahlreiche Erfindungen und neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse im deutschsprachigen Raum entstanden.

Nach den beiden Weltkriegen setzte sich Englisch als in den meisten Bereichen des internationalen wissenschaftlichen Austauschs führende Sprache durch. Dies ist zum einem auf die Herrschaft des Britischen Imperiums, zum anderen auf die Weltmachtstellung der USA zurückzuführen und auf die zwei Weltkriege selber. Auch der Exodus der deutsch-jüdischen Intelligenz während der nationalsozialistischen Diktatur und der deutschen Intelligenz in den Jahren nach 1945 spielte eine große Rolle, da viele Wissenschaftler in die USA emigrierten.

deutsch is not an english word, thus people from Germany are called German, you dont call some1 from Japan a "nihonjin", u call them japanese. And thus people from America arent called Americans but U.S.Aliens :D :D :D :D :D (sry all those who feel offended by this XD XD XD)
