The first thing that I'd do would be to find the change that introduced 
the problem, identify the mapper concerned (which can be tricky where 
there are lots of changes) and explain to them (via a changeset 
discussion comment is often best, because it's public) why what they did 
was incorrect.  From there I'd link to where the Japanese community 
discusses boundaries (which might be the wiki, but often is somewhere else).

You can use this to look at the history of relations:


and if the changeset concerned is (as it appears to be at first glance) 
this one:


you can mention something about "accurate changeset comments" too :)

It's also perhaps worth mentioning this sub-forum:


where as well as international boundaries, problems caused by other 
boundaries are also sometimes discussed.
