To open a bank account, you need to be a resident with an official address. You can't open it if you're in Japan with a tourist visa.

banking system, can i start an account here
Hi, I’m going to visit soon and really appreciate if i can get some advice. Can I start a bank account here? I am on a tourist Visa. Staying for 3 months. Instead of carrying so much cash and to minimize fees, i like to start an account, and then I can transfer funds across in one hit. Later I may use the account to for online shopping! Thank you very much, any guidance is appreciated.
