Can you get pre paid debit cards in japan?

I know there are some you need to be a resident for but i am looking for one i can use as a tourist. I am currently in japan so the exchange rate should not be an issue as all cash i have on me is yen

I’ve seen many prepaid cards on racks at convenience stores. Not sure what exactly you have in mind.

Some you can buy on-line and you don't even need to have a physical card.

But, if you have cash which is as good as a debit card, why do you need a debit card? Is it an on-line purchase - then you can normally use international cards/funds.

Do you not have a credit card? The site you referred said you could use a credit card.

No debit card either? Visa?

Because that sounds like not such a great travel plan...

Even if you can get a prepaid card, half the time they don’t work online.
