There is a new batch of unidentified Japanese vessels in Mystery Ships by "foggy".  Hope someone can help with IDs (at least one has visible Japanese Official Number identified)

Thank you @davidships, much appreciated. Is there any public source/database with japanese ship register/registry numbers available online?

Not that I am aware of, foggy (or I would have looked them up!)  A few members have access to the expensive IHS/Seaweb database in which Off No is a searchable field.  If there is something else, even in Japanese only, I would be glad to hear.
NKK Class site does not include ON in advanced search.

The annual "Register of Shipping" (Senpaku Meisaisho) contains the names and particulars of all merchant ships registered in Japan.

There are various volumes, or you can get all of them in one CD ROM for about

Tempting, even at this price.

Otherwise, cross-referencing various blogs and pages against visible official numbers and names can take a lot of time; when the names are written in hiragana or katakana letters, that's not so difficult, but since the Japanese ship names are mostly written in kanji symbols, deciphering them can become a real task...

IHS database that I use has been a great help for me, but this Japanese register would be the best source, obviously.
