It sounds like they are asking for the the koseki (戸籍), but possibly the juuminhyou (住民票). What are they asking it for?

It sounds like the koseki (戸籍), then. If in Japan, you can get it from the local city hall where she is registered, I believe. If abroad, I don't know: I guess you should call the local consulate or embassy and ask them.

Thanks for your help. We are now in process of trying to get a certified copy of the koseki. 4 more documents, and completing interview 2 and we should be hopefully granted a visa for my wife. What a lengthy, costly, and cumbersome process. Can't wait til it's over. Thanks again!
