Update 00:29 June 06:
The service of upstream was recovered. We will reroute our traffic back to the upstream when we confirm the connectivity.
The brief outage description from upstream is attached below.
Due to the activation of fire alarm, the power system turned off and caused the server room to become locked without power which led to a delay in entering the building to investigate the cause. After confirming the safety with the fire department and police, we were able to enter the building early morning on June 5th.
For details on the resumption of Data Center entry and the start of power supply, there is a report from NTT Bizlink (Japanese only).

Cause of Outage: Fire alarm was triggered on Kasai datacentre which the outage network upstream is connected to. The fire alarm cut the electricity, resulting in network outage of the upstream.
The fire alram does not impact our devices in Tokyo 4. In the meantime, we are enabling alternative upstreams to restore network access.

This is a quick update regarding network issue in Tokyo 4 datacentre. Since 22:55 (JST), one of our upstreams is down in this location. The upstream is used to serve international traffic, and the accident results in partial network outage.
They are working on fixing the issue. Domestic Japanese access and IPv6 network are not impacted at the moment.
