At the risk of sounding entirely un-politically correct, is it possible to

It is entirely possibly to do such. As described earlier, look for the
nic-handles that have been supplied in the JPNIC output, ie:
a. [Network Number] 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124
b. [Network Name] ALLNET-CATV
m. [Administrative Contact] YO020JP <----
Then, perform a specific query for that nic-handle 'YO020JP', ie:
$ whois -h whois.nic.ad.jp YO020JP/e
a. [JPNIC Handle] YO020JP
c. [Last, First] Oishi, Yuichi
d. [E-Mail] oishi () allnet ad jp
g. [Organization] TITUS COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION
The RIPE-style databases (RIPE, APNIC etc) provide you with the referenced
nic-handles (if available) as part of the output, as seperate database
The NSI-style databases (NSI, ARIN etc) embed the contact information in
the whois output, but you can (like other dbs, including JPNIC) request
contact details specifically if you know the nic-handle.
Employed by, but not speaking for, APNIC.
: predating NSI, APNIC and ARIN. And no, there is no standard for
: whois data that is published, let alone publishing at all.
