Does anyone know what the difference is between Japanese Castella cake and Genoise cake?

Hi,
They seem to be almost identical, though sometimes the Japanese version is sweetened with honey.
From the site JapaneseCooking101:
Just like French sponge cakes called génoise, this recipe doesn’t have any leavenings such as baking powder. The batter rises in the oven because of well beaten eggs.
I hope that helps!
