When you visit a municipal office in Japan, you must bring the following documents: Identification: You and your partner may provide your passport, valid driver's license, or residency card as proof of identification (if you have one). If one of you is not a Japanese citizen, an alien registration card is also useful evidence of identity. Marriage certificate: This document proves that you are married. It is required whether you want to register your wedding ceremony in Japan or not. Birth certificates: Proof of date of birth is required for all people over 18 years old. The birth certificate must include your name and the date that it was issued.

If you don't have one, then a copy of your passport or resident ID card is sufficient proof of identity.
