Search Help

Use this to search within a specific -ken or -shi. If you also enter "chome" data (e.g "Takamiya" and "4-8-12") we will try to take you straight to a (candidate) address.

Important: you can only search for areas the post office knows about - e.g. "Akasaka" is fine but "Mount Fuji" won't work.

"for..." is where you enter what you are searching for. This defaults to an exact search: e.g. searching on "Taka" would bring up "Taka" but not "Takamiya". (See "lazy search" below.)

"Opt: chome info" is where you optionally enter the chome, ban and go part of an address. (If you are looking for an area, not an address, leave this blank). This should be numbers, spaces and hyphens only. (We convert spaces to hyphens, so you can enter 4 8 12 for 4-8-12).

"lazy search: if selected, we will look for anything with a name starting with the letters you entered in the "for..." field. E.g. searching on "Taka" will bring up "Taka", "Taka-gun", "Taka-cho", "Takaba".

1. No commas, hyphens ONLY as below.
2. You can't search for something outside the specified area. e.g. don't search for Fukuoka-ken from the Nagasaki-shi search page...
2. To find a prefecture add -ken OR ken. e.g: Nagasaki-ken OR Nagasakiken
3. To find a city add -shi OR shi. e.g: Nagasaki-shi OR Nagasakishi
4. To find a ward add -ku OR ku. e.g: Minami-ku OR Minamiku
5. Case is not important - "nagasaki" = "Nagasaki".
5. No wildcards, keep it simple.

We only show the first 15 results, so type sufficient characters to narrow your search.
