Zairyu card
Alien registration (外国人登録 gaikokujin tōroku?) was a system used to record information regarding aliens resident in Japan. It was handled at the municipal level, parallel to (but separately from) the koseki (family register) and juminhyo (resident register) systems used to record information regarding Japanese nationals.
Foreigners staying in Japan for more than 90 days (excluding military personnel under a Status of forces agreement and diplomatic personnel) were required to register within 90 days of landing in Japan. The applicant was required to provide a completed application form, passport (for applicants 16 years old or older) and two identification photos. The system was voluntary for shorter-term visitors.
Alien registration was a prerequisite to many activities in Japan, such as purchasing a mobile phone, opening a bank account or obtaining a driver's license.[citation needed]
As described below, the alien registration system is being replaced with a foreign residents' registration system from July 9, 2012.

Japan Mobile Tech: Clarification on the zairyu card and verified domestic mail
Aside from the ridiculously expensive rental phones available at international airports, cellular voice service in Japan is legally restricted to residents. Therefore, issues regarding identification verification are tangentially related to the topics commonly discussed here, though admittedly, today's topic - verified mail at the Japan Post - is a bit of a stretch.
