You can play for a J League team even if you are not Japanese. All you need is a team willing to hire you and a work visa (= the Japanese government's work permit), not a Japanese nationality (citizenship).
To play for the Japanese national team, you do need Japanese nationality; that is, you have to become a Japanese citizen. It doesn't matter if you have a family in Japan (having a Japanese spouse makes it easier to obtain Japanese nationality, though.)
Plus, you cannot have played for a different country at the national level, so I believe you cannot ever play for the Japanese national side if you're currently playing for the Costa Rican U-19 team. But this last point is subject to FIFA regulation, which may or may not change in the future. If it's important for you, I suggest you check the FIFA regulations. Good luck!

You can be a part of J league club member if your skill is recognised by the team management and they make a contract with you to give you working visa for playing there.
It doesn't matter about your nationality.
