If your machine is set up for Europe, you are good on the pulley. You might just set the jumpers as instructed for the US and give it a try. If it starts and runs OK, let it run for 10 minutes then unplug it and feel the motor. If it is not abnormally hot you are done.
If the machine does not like 100 Volts, I am pretty sure you can get an autotransformer to step up to US voltage. Make sure the transformer is OK for 50 Hz. 60 Hz is also used in Japan. You can use a 50 Hz transformer on 60 Hz but a 60 Hz transformer may not have enough iron for 50 Hz.

Thanks for the reply,
Would this work for 100v in Japan at 50Hz? Would it produce an acceptable speed for the AC motor?
A slight correction from my first post, the manual says:
"For mains voltages between 210 and 240V, both plugs of the mains cables must be connected to the tags A and E. For mains voltages between 110 and 130V, the cables must be connected to the tags B and E.
Adjustment to another mains frequency:
As supplied for USA and Canada, the turntable is set for 60 cycles, 100 to 120V operation. For other countries, unless differently specified when ordering, the motor is set for 50 cycles, 200 to 240V operation."
The manual then goes on to briefly say that the pulley of the starting clutch must be exchanged.
