156 will be fine for you, I weigh a little bit more and ride a 158.

I also bought mine for Aus/Japan and can speak from experience that it is perfect for me except in very deep powder, on some deep sections in Niseko I really wished I had a bigger/powder board with me but overall im glad i went with the board I have. My powder issues would have been helped by more practise more so than a more suitable board would have been.

Only issue with a 156 for you might be your sice 12 feet, check boot sizes and waist widths before buying.
