You didn't say where in Japan. They have more "active" unicyclists than the rest of the world put together, probably, but most are in elementary school. However there are lots of big clubs, so it might be possible to hook up with other riders depending on location. I don't have any really current contacts, but somebody on here probably does...

I thought that unicycling was very popular in many Asian countries, not just Japan?

It would be a good addition to this place if some of them joined here, and eventually had enough interest so they could have their own language sections added.

You could try going directly to the source, the Japan Unicycling Association. It's been a few years, but when they hosted Unicon in 2004, there were several very serious riders working directly in the JUA offices, and helping to run the convention. Not a lot of English on their homepage though:
http://jua-web.org/index5/

But there is also a unicycle store that's connected to the JUA, with an English page:
https://unicycle.onlinestores.jp/

On there you can see their full address, email and phone number. Their office is in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo. I think I went there once (1987) but this may be a different location in Shibuya-ku. Send an email to "Ken" and see if there are people that would be interested to meet and ride with you. Tell them I sent you, and if anyone remembers me, it may help!
