A note about passwords

  • You may use the same password that you used for your previous account, but we strongly recommend updating to a new one.
  • Your passwords must be more than six characters/numbers.
  •  Alphabet characters and numbers can be used for passwords. Your passwords must contain a number, an uppercase letter and a lowercase letter.
  • If you use a Japanese keyboard, the characters should be half-width kana.
