Most foreigners can get a 90-day visitors visa when they arrive in Japan as long as they either have a return ticket for within those 90-days or they apply to the Japanese embassy in their country before they leave.
If anyone wants to stay longer than 3 months, please read the previous posts on traveling to Japan.
