Individuals can register a .jp domain name if they reside in Japan or have a company that is located there - the registrant contact country must be Japan.
2 Transfers-In requirements

3 Transfers-Away requirements
To transfer your .JP domain to another registrar, submit a transfer request at the gaining registrar (the registrar to whom you are transferring). You will not need an authorization code to request a transfer.
Once we receive notice from the registry that a transfer request has been submitted, we will send you an email instructing you how to authorize the transfer. Please note, the transfer must be authorized through your GoDaddy account within 8 days, otherwise you may need to restart the transfer process with the gaining registrar.
4 Contact updates requirements
Only the Registrant contact is required by the registry. Technical, Administrative, and Billing contacts are optional.
