Every country has some system to enforce its own laws. If the American citizen has been charged with a crime in Japan, then Japan has the authority to conduct a trial. Deportation, in this case, is a matter of Japanese law. It is possible that the American could be deported after being tried and found guilty, or after serving a sentence in prison in Japan, or Japan could offer her voluntary departure at some point. In any case, the United States courts have no authority to conduct trials for violations of Japanese law.

This is an international criminal law question, not an immigration question. Check with the US State Department or the Citizen Services section at the US consulate in Japan.

No, extremely unlikely under Japanese law as I understand it. Later, however, if she's convicted and sentenced to prison in Japan, she may be able to serve some of the time in a U.S. prison.
