Nikon has four camera repair centers in Japan: Ginza (Tokyo), Shinjuku (Tokyo), Osaka, and Nagoya (Aichi) (in Japanese here). They are part of the Nikon Plaza camera showrooms (and Nikon Salon galleries in Tokyo and Osaka). Kudos to Nikon for being one of the very few cameras makers in Japan to provide information in English.
Most people will have to use Nikon’s system to pick up and deliver the camera for repairs. You can either call or use the online form to request camera repairs. (Japanese instructions here). Only in Japanese.
Nikon also has a customer support phone number for camera repair inquiries (in Japanese only). This is not a toll-free number:
0570-02-8000 (Nikon Customer Support)
Operators are available from 9 am to 5 pm on weekdays and Sat. (Closed Dec. 31–Jan. 3)
You can also call to arrange for them to pick up your camera for repair. A fee will be charged for this service. Call this toll-free number (in Japanese):
0120-02-8155 (for camera pickup service)
Operator hours: Operator hours: 9 am to 6 pm, closed year-end and New Year’s period.
