I like ipw from the FreeBSD ports collection. 

In this case ipw returns several lines of useful information, including 

  tech-c:      YO020JP 

Then the next step is

  akbar% whois -h  whois.nic.ad.jp YO020JP/e

giving you the answer you seek.

I really like the ripe style databases.

Yes, there is.  Use the Geektools whois proxy at whois.geektools.com.  You
can also get the perl source and setup your own proxy, since they only
allow something like 10 or so queries a day.  I've used their source in a
few tools and have had no real problems with it.

Of course, once the technological means are taken care of you still have
to have reliable contact information in the database, and someone who'll
actually read your complaint and respond in an acceptable amount of time.
