080 is the country code for Japan.  They use a 4 digit - 4 digit phone number. 080-xxxx-xxxx

You are correct.  The country code for Japan is +81.  080 indicates it is a mobile (cell).

skype does not support 080 so phone call can not be made

There is no country code 080.  If you google the entire number it does come back as a cell phone in Japan.  I did not attempt to go any further with the research though.
