Issue with JAL website award search lately?

Trying to use JL miles for future redemption and while searching in the JL website under JAL International Award Search section, the only option for designation is JAPAN when anywhere else is selected as origin. Tried a couple of different accounts and browser, and wonder if others may have encounter this? Not going to risk transferring points over if I can't book online directly as soon as I see F opens up on the date I want...

JAL internetional flight award are limited to flights between JAPAN and ohter countries.
If you want to do U.S - Japan - Asia, you need two awards (US - Japan, and Japan Asia).
What are you looking for ?

I am looking for US-Japan-Asia indeed. Has that been changed recently with the award chart change? Earlier this year, I was able to redeem JL miles online with the same itinerary.
