Japan uses a different FM band range to many other countries.
You need to fit a band expander to get the radio to work over the wider band range.
Here in NZ where I am, Japanese used imported vehicles are commonly fitted with an expander after which they will pick up the radio stations in the local area. The displayed frequencies will however show a different frequency but one gets accustomed to that and otherwise functions perfectly normally.
