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.
