# Do I need I license to have these walkie talkies in Japan

I currently reside in Japan (not on a military base) and I have been interested in purchasing some walkie talkies. I found these on amazon JP Link and I was wondering if can I own something like this without a license. Here are the specs.

Transmission and reception frequency: 422.050 ~ 422.300MHz (12.5KHz step)

Transmission output: 10mW

Receiving sensitivity: -14dBμ following (12dB SINAD)

Receiving system: double superheterodyne system

Power supply voltage: DC3.6 ~ 4.5V (AA alkaline batteries × 3 This optional)



I assumed that since it was on Amazon Jp that it must be legal in Japan but I thought that I should be safe than sorry. So are these walkie talkies legal and if they are would I need a license? Also do these seem like good quality walkie talkies? Would they have a good range (i.e. a few miles). I couldn't find and info about the distance on that amazon page.

• Please include the model and specifications of what you are asking about. Your question should remain useful even if the listing on Amazon is removed. And you ought to consider asking the core “can I own something like this without a license” part from questions about specific models, because even though this is not strictly a duplicate of your previous question, it's not very useful to anyone to ask the same thing about many different models. – Kevin Reid AG6YO Apr 17 '16 at 15:58
