Citibank is the only foreign bank known to do *consumer* banking in
Japan.  (There are a number of foreign banks that do commercial
banking. Email the FAQ maintainer if you know of another foreign bank
that handles personal accounts.) A branch manager for a major Japanese
bank told me that they need to check personal identification for
foreigners because of money laundering problems; however, he added
that passports should suffice as an ID for most foreigners. This, of
course, does not guarantee anything for *your* case, and there have
been complaints against Japanese banks not servicing foreigners.
