Hello LEED experts, my project is in Japan, and I checked the Walkscore website, it shows a very high score for my project location. But the website said "unsupported country". In this case, can I still use the Walkscore result to claim the credit points? Thanks for your advice.

I don't believe USGBC will allow an 'unsupported country' to demonstrate credit compliance with the Walkscore. (in fact, I believe this is the reason the UNITED STATES Green Building Council took so long to allow Walkscore to demonstrate credit compliane in the first place - - - too many unsported countries in Walkscore)
High Walkscores typically mean that the project is located within a local vicinity that has high density, so you should be able to get the same amount of points from the credit....you'd just need to complete the density calcs.
