I had the toughest time working these two addresses into the right format, but I'm not 100% sure if the Japanese postman will understand:

〒4X2-9999 
静岡県浜松市佐鳴台
7-32-45-XXX
続木信行 (つづき のぶゆき)
PHS XXX-XXXX-XXXX

Tsuzuki Nobuyuki
7-32-45-XXX Sanarudai
Hamamatsu, Shizuoka-ken
Japan 4X2-9999
PHS XXX-XXXX-XXXX

Now is there a better way to handle the 7-32-45-XXX part? I'm fairly certain XXX is room number and the 45 is the building number...

〒5X1-4444 大阪府八尾市 桜ヶ丘 X-98
太田 篤(atsushi ohta)
XXX-XXX-XXXX

Atsushi Ohta
X-98 Sakuragaoka
Yaoshi, Osaka-fu
Japan 5X1-4444
PHS XXX-XXX-XXXX

Oh ye kind Japanese residents on this forum, please lend me a helping hand.

Edit: Now all the numbers are fake.

The addresses look fine. The Japanese PO will have no probs in delivering.

I see you found Mr. Tsuzuki. Great seller, been buying from him for years. What did you buy, BTW?

3 from Mr. Tsuzuki, and the last one from Mr. Atsushi (I couldn't find the exact one for the Mizuho 1/4; it's almost the same as the one I posted, but she's in a black lingerie instead):

Plan to buy more from them in the near future, so gotta pay my dues.
