If you can't reach someone at the embassy, the next best place to call is JAL (Japan Airlines), as they are the flag carrier of Japan and more than likely they would know if certain nationals would need a transit visa in Japan.
But just for reference, the 3 times I had connecting flights in Japan, two of my layovers were only between 1 to 3 hours. The other 1, I was only at Narita for a few minutes - I almost missed my connecting flight because my previous flight was delayed. Thankfully there were only a few passengers on that flight (small plane) so they waited (and there were about 3 or 4 of us from the previous delayed flight).
