I lived in Japan for 2 years when I was in the navy, Japan has some weird requirements for the turn signals. They cannot be red lenses for the signals. So what they generally do is retrofit the reverse lights to turn signals and add a reverse light under the bumper to get it to pass inspection on these American cars. I had thought about bringing my 69 mustang over when I was in but to get it legal to drive over there was stupid expensive. I'm guessing that's why they changed these things with the tail lights. I'm not sure why op would want to buy this car in Japan as it's going to cost so much more over there unless he is Japanese and can't eventually come back to the states?
