Here's what I found:
For the Women’s World Olympic Qualification Tournament in Japan, the first three ranked team to qualify, then the best ranked Asian team among the remaining teams participating in the tournament.
OK, this makes a difference. The way I wrote it, then if Japan was in the top three they would go as the Asian team. But apparently that's not true. If Japan is in the top three then they go as one of the at-large teams, meaning another Asian team gets in. That makes a big difference!
