From here: http://www.mofa.go.j...it/visa/02.html
If the passengers of an airplane or ship that lands at an airport or seaport in Japan wish to enter Japan temporarily for shopping or rest, they can receive special landing permission from the immigration authority at the port of arrival even if they do not possess a visa.
In principle, applications for such special landing permission are made not by the foreigners wishing to enter Japan themselves but by the captain of their airplane or ship or by the carrier (transportation company) operating the flight or voyage. When special landing permission is granted, the foreigners concerned are not given any status of residence or period of stay, but restrictions on landing time and scope of movement are stipulated as conditions for permission. Also, special landing permission is not granted if the applicant will be returning to his or her place of departure (for example, coming from Hawaii and then returning to Hawaii).
Please note that these permits are for very short stays, they cannot be extended, and the route to be followed in transit, etc. is subject to restrictions. If foreigners wish to travel in Japan, they are recommended to acquire a transit visa or a short-term visa before coming to Japan.
For more details concerning special landing permission, please inquire at the nearest immigration authority.

Yeah, I've just asked my friend who just got back from the states. He said that everytime he transitted in Tokyo, he did not have to get a transit visa. But of course, he did not leave the airport. Btw, Narita is a HUGE and wonderful airport.. transitting there should be fun as long as it's not more than 4 hours. You can even take a shower there :D They have great facillities there.

Unfortunately Thailand airport won't let you fly through Tokyo without an american passport, unless you have a paid for ticket which i don't have ( I fly standby as an airline employee).
