As a Japanese national you don't need a visa to be in Switzerland so you'd revert to tourist status and have up to 3 more months after you de-register as being resident.

Is the 3-month tourist visa after de-registration a truly recognized way to wind down residency - or more of a "no one should care" situation? If that is valid to continue residency, what prevents you from getting a 1-year Schengen visa as a long-term tourist from France and then maintaining your Swiss residence even longer?

If we are from Schengen area, it will be a different story. Thanks anyway.

Because a) once you're in the Schengen Area you can't get another Schengen visa so you'd have to leave the Area to reapply and b) we're talking about a nationality that doesn't need a visa in the first place. If you're a national from a country that does need a tourist visa to visit Switzerland then you should make arrangements to leave the country by the date your resident permit expires. There is NO grace period past your permit's expiry date unless there is an application in for a new residence permit and you're awaiting the decision.

What takkyun has to do is de-register before his permit expires then he'll have the documentation to show border control when he does leave that he wasn't still here as a resident, but had reverted to tourist status on the date he de-registered. So staying for a few more days to wrap things up shouldn't be a problem. If he doesn't de-register on time then when he does leave border control may well fine him for overstaying and he would also risk being banned from entering Switzerland again for between 1 and 3 years.
