I've pinged the network maintainer months ago requesting IPv6 access be restored to that machine but it hasn't been picked up in that organisation by the responsible person.

(My IPv6 connectivity works fine, I've tried this from several networks, traceroute6s [traceroutes6?] get all the way into ja.net and fail after a few hops in their network.)
Use any network traffic tool like ping6
1) Remove AAAA from DNS;
2) Bug admins to reinstate IPv6 connectivity to that host;
3) Re-add AAAA record to DNS.
