If you have an unlocked phone, you can use a Japanese SIM. If not, you can
rent a phone at Narita and use that (expensive). Or use roaming which is
also expensive but works OK for the occasional call (e.g, when they get
lost :)). Generally not good for data.

B-mobile has a 'visitor' SIM which you can order online and have delivered
at the Narita post office so you can pick it up when you land. It's data
only though. As far as I know, buying a voice SIM requires a permanent
address in Japan, so not really available for visitors. You can rent one
from Softbank (and probably others) though.
