Not many do, but one that does is Interactive Brokers.

I believe Tokyo has some difficult rules for gaijin. Hence why it is uncommon for foreign brokers to include them.

Many of the larger Japanese companies are available as American Depository Receipts (ADRs). A sort of one-stock fully funded ETF. Traded on US markets.
