The employers in Japan issue all employees Gensen Choshu-hyo (源泉徴収票) each year.
A Gensen Choshu-hyo shows the amounts of total salary of each year and withheld social security payments as well as income tax. On it you can see Gengonen (元号年), Japanese traditional year, that is shown in the list above. You can claim past 5 year’s tax refunds in Gensen Choshu-hyo, on that you can see one of above 5 year’s Gengonen.

[Note] Year 2019 has double Gengonen, 平成31年 and 令和元年.

If you are now out of Japan then you can claim your past income tax refunds using a tax agent (納税管理人) in Japan, whom you can desginate in Japan in order to execute your tax refunds.
