You can redeem on alaskaair.com for JAL flights. Will they not let you book online with your points? I use my miles to book for family members regularly online with no issues.

ETA: You mentioned you had 150k which was enough for 6 tickets. This sounds like you are flying inter-Asia, not to or from the US, is that right? I believe there is a restriction on purchasing or changing flights on short notice for flights not to or from the US but you should be able to book flights further out I would think.
