Uber & Taxis are available during the day, but very expensive.
English is not commonly spoken, written or understood; Have Google translate installed on your phone, (this will come in handy in many situations)
The easiest and most popular city to arrive into Japan is Tokyo.
There are two major international airports in Tokyo (Narita and Haneda), and you can catch a train in Tokyo for pretty much every city via JR or Shinkansen.
If you are coming from another destination, Kansai International Airport, is nearest to Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto; and New Chitose Airport, is nearest to Sapporo.
