How to get a copy of your Japanese Marriage Certificate from overseas.
If you have been married in Japan and require another original copy of your marriage certificate then you can receive it from overseas with our help.
The first step is to get in contact with us by email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). Our office ( Okinawa Translator ) is located in Okinawa, Japan. We need to know your full legal names, birth dates, date of marriage, and which City Office you got married. Next we will call the City Office and confirm that they have your marriage certificate and that you really did get married at that city office.
The second step is for us to prepare a Power of Attorney document specifically designating us to go to the City Office and get another marriage certificate issued on your behalf. We prepare the Power of Attorney and send it to you via an email attachment. After you sign it you will then send it to our mailing address.

After we receive the signed Power of Attorney we will then go to the city office and get your marriage certificate and after that we can mail the original copy to you wherever you are in the world.
