You should check those things before booking any flight, in all sincerity.

You should note that:

1) Narita Airport is not a 24 hours operational airport

2) You would need to enter Japan and pass through immigration as you would not be able to spend at the air-side throughout the night

3) You would need a visa for entering Japan; green card and status of residency has nothing to do with visa which are based on citizenship/nationality - so please do check the Embassy of Japan website of the Philippines to check what is needed.

You'll need a visa or a shore pass (subject to airline procedures) to even board the flight.to Japan as you *must* go through immigration to stay overnight at Narita Airport.

Have this sorted out well before your trip.

If you're in the US, The green card is relevant to the visa application process. See here …emb-japan.go.jp/itpr_en/travel_and_visa.html and the transit visa instructions: …emb-japan.go.jp/english/…transit.html

But arriving in Japan this Monday? I do not know what your options are. Can you re-book for a future flight?
