Japan requires every visitor to have a valid status for entering the country.  For the majority of visitors that means a visa in one of many different categories.  For tourists it is a "short-term stay" visa.  Japan has agreements with 67 countries under a visa waiver programme where a short-term "permit" is issued on arrival.  The list is at

If you are staying inside the international terminal (and not exiting into the country), then as a transit passenger you are not entering the country and do not require a visa.

As you do not give your citizenship it is impossible to say whether you need a Japantransit visa.

This official page should help:

By the way, the UK does not automatically require a visa for overnight transit. Some citizenships require a visa to transit the UK airside, some need a visa to transit the UK landside, some do not need a visa at all......
