Post Issue: Factory Headlight aiming

It may have been the clear moonless night, or the fact that I was driving down a road lacking streetlights or traffic. But I noticed that the headlights are aimed so that the passenger side points further along the road than the drivers side. Now I havn't changed the stock aim, so I'm sure that this is the factory setting.

Question: Isn't this, passenger side further down the road, setup the Japanese road setting and not the American road setting?

Is this the reason I'm having such a hard time seeing the road in bad weather? (or do the stock lights blow?)

That's the US setting. That way the side of the road is better illuminated, so you can see things that might run into the road (i.e. children, cats, drunks....) It's also to keep you from blinding on coming drivers, since the lights are pointed a touch away from them.
