Okay so I saw these walkie talkies on eBay that I want to buy but I live in Japan and I am not sure if they are legal. I did some research but couldn't figure out if they are or not. I am very much a beginner when it comes to walkie talkies etc. so any help would be very much appreciated. Here is the walkie talkie specs:
BAOFENG UV-3R VHF/ UHF DUAL-BAND TWO WAY RADIO Frequency Range: 136-174 / 400-470MHz Output Power: 2 Watts 99 Channels + 1 Emergency Channel 50 CTCSS and 104 CDCSS Built-in VOX Function 1750Hz Brust Tone FM Radio (87.0MHz-108.0MHz) 25KHz/12.5KHz Switchable Channel Step: 5/6.25/12.5/25KHz
Here are some more:

I hope these do work. Here is the link to the page. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/351398723510 I thought it best to ask here before I buy because I don't want to get myself or my Dad in trouble with the law.
