Married in US, do I need to get remarried in Japan (Tokyo)

Hi Everyone,

My husband and I are about to move to Tokyo the end of this month. He is a Japanese national so I am qualified to get a Spouse Visa. We are married in the USA. There's been a lot of conflicting information that we are getting where we are required to get married again in Japan in order to apply for a spouse visa. Has anyone gone through a similar situation or can provide further advice/information?

Thanks in advance!
