JapanPostal codes in Japan are known as “郵便番号” (yubin-bangou) and consist of seven digits. The first three digits indicate the prefecture or city, while the last four digits indicate the specific area within the prefecture or city. Japan introduced postal codes in 1968, and they are used for both domestic and international mail delivery. Some larger cities, such as Tokyo and Osaka, have multiple postal codes due to their size and number of neighborhoods. In addition to postal codes, Japan also uses a unique two-letter code for each prefecture, which is often included in mailing addresses. The Japan Post website provides a tool for looking up postal codes based on addresses.
