In Japan, seal called hanko is used in place of signature. Seals registered at city hall are known as jitsuin (registered seal). A document certifying that a seal is a jitsuin is known as a seal registration certificate (inkan shomeisho). Both are required for important contracts. Registration must be made in person to avoid misuse by others.

Seal to be registered must not be ready-made and must be within 8mm to 25mm sq. inclusive. Your name engraved in seal must be the same as it written in the resident registration certificate. One seal per person can be registered. For application, your resident card or your special permanent resident certificate and a seal to be registered are required to submit. For inquiry, contact Shimin-ka (Jyumin-ka) in advance.
