For nearly all passes, you must have a Temporary Visitor Status in your passport (i.e.landing permit or tourist visa). People on student visas will not qualify. There are a few exceptions you might look at though, such as the JR Kanto Area Pass.

See:

For a good guide to various passes.

Flying on a low cost carrier is also a good possibility:

AFAIK, only the Koyasan World Heritage Ticket if you have a student visa.
