JAF (Japan Automobile Federation) query

Can anyone please supply us with the fax and email address of the JAF organization in Tokoyo Japan, or in Wakkanai Port, Hokkaido prefeture?
The current email address that I have is: kokusai@jaf.or.jp and this does not work!!!

Also, the email address for Red Baron Motorcycles in Japan?

Many thanks to you all in advance

Chris Cowper

FAX No. of JAF Branch Offices for Carnet Authentication:
From JAF For Visitors Bringing Vehicles with Carnet de Passages en Douane
Sapporo (closest to Wakkanai, but still 300 km away): +81-11-857-7177
Tokyo: +81-3-5440-2564
There is no JAF office in Wakkanai.
I would recommend trying to contact the Tokyo head office first and ask them to E-mail you back. When using the ferry from Vlad to Fushiki (a very small town), you usually have to go through the Tokyo head office then visit the office in Toyama to get the actual papers. They will not handle authentication by mail.
If you have to go to Sapporo from Wakkanai, it is 11,000 yen (US$100) round trip by overnight bus. Five hours by express train at about double the price.

Red Baron:
This is the international trade dept., but I assume they could direct your inquiry to whomever it needs to go.

Red Baron Wakkanai

Here is also the phone number for Red Baron, Wakkanai, Hokkaido:

TEL : 0162-26-2167

Be advised, however, they are only open during the summer months (1 July until end of September if I am not all wrong!!).

In addition, I don't know about their foreign language abilities (i.e. English or any other). When I went there last year it was Japanese only.

Sorry.

Fax them your documents and ask for a reply by e-mail as I recommended yesterday.

We came in to Wakkanai from Sakhalin Island by ferry and did not need the JAF paper work after all. The carnet was stamped at the Terminal in Wakkanai. All went smoothly.
