Hi, Daniel

You can check a document of Japan tagging standards here.

And in this page you can see examples of "place=*" usage.
I think addr:* is same.

So for your example, addr:* would be like this,
addr:country=JP (JA is Japanese language, JP is Japan country)
addr:neighbourhood=5 or 五丁目
addr:block_number=3 or 3番 or 3番地
addr:housenumber=1 or 1号

Yes, English/Romaji/Kana tagging will make a huge list.

I think addr:place=* is not used in Japan address tagging.
