In the midst of continuing suffering at one week since the horrific quake off the cost of Japan, I came across the story of Our Lady of Akita. This approved apparition happened in 1973 and was approved in 1988. In this appearance, the Blessed Mother urged daily prayer of the Rosary. I encourage you to ask for her intercession for the people of Japan. Read more about Our Lady of Akita here.
Another powerful intercessor is St. Frances Xavier, who was a missionary to Japan.
