I was given a vintage touring bike recently. It's steer tube badge says D-114 made in Japan. I can't find any info on it and was hoping someone may have some info on the brand or bike.

Looks like a Nishiki Arrow Speed
I had one of those while in college in the early 90s.
I have two bikes VERY similar to yours; same components, brakes, fork crown... One of them has no branding on it. The other is branded "Cobra" and says "made for Eaton's". Eaton's was a Canadian department store chain. Did some research; Raleigh England made the bikes under the brand Cobra for sale at Eaton's. So, your D-114 may actually have been made by Raleigh.
thats a beautiful bike i had a 1962bottechia with the exact components as well as the location of serial numbers also on most vintage bikes that. have stamped markings around center of rear hub you may notice two small numbers seperate from any other markings stamped into center those two lonely numbers are the last two digits of the year it was built thats if those rims are original for that frame
