If the autofocus speed and EVF refresh bother you the XE2 will be noticeably better. The XT1 will be even better, and a lot more expensive, but it won't be available for your trip this month. Your current selection of lenses is good enough.

Your XE1 is capable of capturing very good photos, but if you aren't getting them you need to practice because not even the XT1 will improve your photography right out of the box. While the XE2 won't magically fix your photos, not being frustrated but the AF and EVF speeds will make you enjoy your camera more which means you will use it more.

Try reading some books like "Mastering the X-E1 and X-Pro", and practice taking the kinds of photos you will be taking in Japan.
