Dear Alice,

I’m looking at my Japanese driver’s license and wondering if the form on the back has anything to do with organ donation. Years ago, I registered in the United States to be an organ donor, which was a simple matter of checking a box on my driver’s license application. Now that I’m living in Japan, I’d like to register here too, but have no idea how the heck it’s done. Can foreigners be donors? Actually, I’d prefer to offer the whole kit and caboodle, but is it possible in Japan to donate one’s body to science?
