If all film raw materials were imported, then it would be bad for Fujifilm. It is very unlikely that this is true.
I'm thinking primarily of silver, which is likely to be the largest cost driver (at least for traditional b/w film). Since commodities are generally priced in US dollars or in Euros, it will take more yen to purchase a given quantity. I'm sure not all materials are imported
