Registration

 

Registration is realtime and requires no additional data. If you provide a Japanese address for one of the contacts, the "state/province" field is mandatory and must contain the 2-digit prefecture code. A list of prefecture codes is available here; be sure not to include the "JP-" prefix, just the number.

co.jp:
In case of a co.jp, additional documents are required (business license or ID card + registration form). You will receive an email with instructions after the registration.

 

Transfer

 

Needs to be initiated with a so-called REG-ID. This REG-ID can be requested at the current registrar. The REG-ID should be filled in in the authorization code field.
After requesting the transfer the owner will receive an email requesting transfer approval. After approval is given the transfer takes a few more days to complete.
