Hi List

My name is Daniel and I'm writing on behalf of the OpenStreetMap Japan
Foundation (OSMF Japan).

The Japanese OSM community has recently incorporated an association "一般社団法人"
(ippan-shadan-hōjin) [1], named "OpenStreetMap Foundation Japan" (in
Japanese this is written as "一般社団法人オープンストリートマップ・ファウンデーション・ジャパン") [2].

We're thinking of applying as a local chapter of OSM.
I think that OSMF Japan fulfills the rules for local chapters [3], so we
would like to ask about the process how to apply, such as documents and
further necessary steps.

If you questions, please let me know.
Best regards,
