Should be able to. Like mentioned, you'd just have to get the Nav Disk for Japan, or the maps for Japan uploaded to your nav system

I couldn't do it for Europe, so I doubt you could do it for Japan (I didn't think they'd let you import a car that was less than 30 years old). I was told I'd need a whole new nave system, not just a disc.

Awesome! The laws must have changed since I was stationed at Misawa. Enjoy your Charger over there!

Being military, you really aren't "importing" the car. We can get away with a few more things than most. You can only bring one vehicle with you, which is why a lot of military families end up buying a cheap "domestic" car in whatever country they live in.

When I PCS'd to Misawa, I was told I couldn't bring a vehicle unless it was 30+ years old (or it was prohibitively expensive, I don't remember).

It's different here in the UK, I was able to bring my Charger over at no cost (other than my nav disc being stolen). That's when I started calling around to find out if I could just put a European nav disc in. Everyone said no. Basically, the whole nav unit needs to be the European version for the European disc to work. I hope it's different in Japan.

according to the JFTR( joint forces travel regulations) and DOD 4500.13r i believe it is its discretionary.
