Yes you both need visas. Normally you are supposed to apply in your own country but you should also inquire at the Russian consulate in Tokyo whether you can apply with them and under what conditions. As for the invitations aka visa support aka voucher and confirmation - please start with reading the visa FAQ to your right and come back with specific questions if any.

If you're in Perth and not travelling until September 2014 or thereabouts, I'd advise getting your visa organised via the Russian embassy in Canberra before you go.
