When change arises by the contents indicated by the residents period and the passport, according to a passport, you also have to change a registration matter.
Those who are not Japanese nationality have neither a family register nor a resident card.

The Immigration Bureau is controlling by Over stay, illegal working, etc. A foreigner's crime in Japan does not sever the back.
