Japan has installed Auto-GCAS on its F-35A fleet [original article in Japanese of some kind]
23 May 2020 ALERT5

"Japan has installed the automatic ground collision avoidance system (Auto GCAS) on its F-35A following a fatal crash last year. All 17 aircraft at Misawa Air Base had the system installed since the end of last year. Four more F-35As are expected to arrive at the base later, these will come equipped with Auto-GCAS.

A Japan Air Self-Defense Force F-35A pilot was killed when the jet crashed on Apr. 9, 2019. Investigators determined that he had become disoriented."
