Layover at Narita, Japan. Do I need a transit visa?
I will be transferring between two international flights at Tokyo Narita airport. I'm scheduled to depart the same day I arrive. I am planning to stay within the airport during the layover. Does anyone know if I will require a transit visa at Narita?

I have also the same question because im flying to Toronto with a stopover to NRT for 4 hours. Im confused if I will be needing a visa for the stopover. Thank you guys for the answer.
No visa is required for transiting in Japanese airports if you have immediate flight connections regardless of nationality.
Anyway, there is a Japanese transit visa which is intended for people who have longer layovers before transiting and want to go sightseeing or resting in Japan for few days (up to 15 days).
Apparently, if you have an overnight layover, you will need a transit visa. See SSS's comment below.
