Most of us remember that there was a war between Russia and Japan in 1904-1905, and that Russia was defeated in that war. The fact that in WW I Russia and Japan have been allies, not enemies, is not so widely known. 

Nevertheless here is another evidence of military supplies from Japan to Russian army. The top line on the field telephone label says that the supplier of Tel 22 was "Okura & Co." located in Tokyo, Japan. 

It is quite strange though, that schematic diagram of our Tel 22 is in English, not in Russian language...
