Father's right if the children are not registered in Japan

Home  > Legal Issues > Father's right if the children are not registered in Japan
My japanese wife of 9 years has just given birth to our twins in France and we are extremely happy.
When checking the procedure for getting them a japanese passport in my name I discovered that if we evere separated I had absolutely no rights to even visiting my kids.
Because of that I am now opposed to them getting the double-nationality, or event registering their birth at the japanese embassy.
This is of course a big source of tension between us.
They were born 3 weeks ago, and have to be declared within 3 months of birth.
Am I right to think that if they are not declared to the japanese embassy and do not have the Japanese nationality, I am somehow protected from all the problems I am reading about on these forums or is this just wishfull thinking on my part, and am I fighting with my wife for nothing ?
Thanks in advance for your answers !!
