Even when a debt/loan is clear, you must seek for a refund!
Due to complexity of interest laws set out under the Japanese investment law(sets a statutory limitation of a interest rates at 15-20%) and the Japanese interest rate restriction law (sets a limitation of a interest rates at 29.2%), people tends to over-pay such interest without noticing, resulting in overall over-payments.
Such interest rates were not strictly regulated, and no regulatory law existed to penalize for excessive interest rates. In many cases, exceeded interest rates of over 20% were normally charged.
Since June, 2010, the limitation of interest rates under the Japanese interest rate restriction law was revised from 29.2% to 20%, filling the gap in interest rates between the Japanese investment law and the Japanese interest rate restriction law. Due to the revision to the law, you are eligible for compensation of over-payments if you borrowed before June, 2010.
It is a legitimate right of yours under law to receive a refund for such over-payment.
