There are over 15 bulbs back there for the backlighting and the various indicators. Check the following schematic (upper left) and pinpoint which of them are actually burnt, so that I can suggest the appropriate part numbers / alternatives:

You probably just need the four type3 A bulbs. Part number for these is 83119-42010, their respective sockets part number is 83101-32020.
They are ridiculously expensive (for what they are), so try to source 12v-14v micro lamps and replace the burnt lamps in the existing sockets as per the instructions in the already proposed thread here: http://www.rav4world.com/forums/94-4-1-d-i-y-modifications/183401-diy-replace-tiny-lights-behind-dash-buttons.html
Their proposed specifications should be: 14V 3.0W (or 214 mA) along with a green cap/condom.
Google pictures of the part numbers for a better understanding of what you should be searching for.

EDIT: They seem to be "wedge-type" bulbs, not bulbs with long wires, so they should just push in to the existing sockets.
Also, google translate the following page, it is extremely helpful: https://www.drive2.ru/l/3482740/
