Question NRT equivilant of TSA question

Where can I find an English website for an equivilant administration like the United States' TSA in Japan? I'm clear on the rules of flying out of the country but I don't know about assuming its the same for entering the secure side of the American Airlines terminal at NRT.

Thanks in advance.

Recent as Friday, the Security has only changed at the departure gate. All other security measures leaving Narita are standard. Standard Metal Detector and x-ray scan of hand baggage (but not necessary to remove laptop from carry bag).

New secondary screening for all passengers (not random as was on the DFW - NRT leg a week earlier by US TSA)

After ticket/BP is pulled, you are instructed to wait for a free security agent. They have about 8 inspection tables, where your hand luggage was opened and everything inside was checked for prohibited items. not a big deal, 2-3 minutes maybe, but I was at the front of the line, group 5 people must have had to wait.

Also past the secondary screening, now Duty Free is delivered there, where before you could carry from the shop to the plane but no longer.

Side effect was it slowed the passenger entry to the plane, and the process of loading and stowing luggage was pretty stress-free...

Enjoy the trip...

NRT Terminals

As I am transiting NRT in about a week, I checked the Terminal situation. AA is still in the same terminal, according to NRT site linked from AA http://www.narita-airport.jp/en/guide/t_info/index.html. AA is still in Terminal 1.
