Since 2006 the "Mobile Phone Improper Use Prevention Act" requires anyone who intends to buy a voice-call-capable SIM card (prepaid or postpaid) to show a proper identification which indicates that he/she has a residential (permanent) address in Japan. A hotel address is not sufficient for this purpose.
All foreigners must have an alien registration to purchase a voice SIM.
As a tourist without a visa which permits to stay for more than 90 days, you won't get one. So you cannot obtain any local cellphone SIM with a voice-call, under your name, period.
