How to file restoration of patent in Japan?

As per the Japan Patent Act, if an applicant not only misses the annual-fee payment deadline but also the six-month grace period, patent lapses. However, if non-payment was due to reasons beyond control, the applicant has six more months from the lapse date during which the patent can be restored subject to payment of a penalty charge.
