I would say that investigating local options would be a good start.  Perhaps, there is a phone company or operation within Japan that offers reasonable rates from nation to nation within the region.  Sometimes, phone companies judge rates to other nations based on proximity of the nation.  Nations that are closer to the source nation of the call are less than those farther away.  Another option would be to invest in an international calling card.  These phone cards cost a one time fee for purchasing them and have a certain amount of minutes that can be used towards phone calls.  I think that this might be a really good option, depending on their availability for you.
