Getting the account should be straightforward once you have
a signed gpg key, see the description in

If you don't have a gpg key yet, please generate one with 4096 bits
keylength now. It's good to get as many signatures as possible from people
that already have signatures by other kernel contributors. The complication
is that you anyone who signs your key needs to verify your identity, otherwise
the signature method would not be helpful.

I have added three people to Cc that might be able you here: I understand that
you live in Osaka, so Simon Horman would be physically the closest in Kobe.
Takahiro Akashi works at Socionext in Tokyo, and I think you already know Akira

If you happen to be in the same place with one of them, or maybe they have
already signed the key of someone close by.
