Quoted from MAJRob:

Thanks much kingpingames! Yep I checked with JJP and they are configured to work with the 110 by 50MHz versus 110 by 60 MHz here stateside.
Great call sed6 about the MWR-will check with Camp Zama about 90 minutes away

The US is 120 volts at 60 Hertz, Japan is 100 volts and either 50 or 60 Hertz depending on your location.

Hey there Gents. We found our home and moved in to Tokyo. Actually moved into a house and I wish I would have brought more games. Convinced the wife that bringing two games was vital to our marriage.
Ended up bringing Hobbit and Whitewater. It sure was hard putting Simpsons in storage but wanted one game with longer ball times and another that wasn't too long for variety.
I need to order a transformer to fix the voltage because the flippers on WH2O are all weak. It's in the mail.
I appreciate all the feedback everyone. If you find yourselves in Tokyo let me know and we can throw some dead animal on the grill, play some pinball and crush some beers!

Nice to see you made the transition smoothly and your pins made it with you unscathed. Enjoy Japan! (It's a weird, cool and funky country)
