You are expected to make a gift of cash for a traditional Japanese wedding. The amount is sometimes on the invitation. Use new bills and a special envelope.

Money or 'Oshugi': clean bills in a decorated envelope; food and herbs; a painted fan, symbolizing the guests happiness at the marriage; a cask of Sake, the traditional rice wine.

Money is the traditional gift at a Japanese wedding. The amount depends on your relationship with the couple (ask another guest if you are not sure). Give it in an envelope called a shugi-bukuro with your name on the front. Use new, non-creased bills if possible.

Cash will be expected, given in a traditional wedding gift envelope (shugi bukuro)with your name on the outside. New bills are considered proper, not old ones with creases.

Traditionally, you are to bring cash to a wedding as a gift. The cash gift is called an Oshugi and is put in an envelope called a shugi-bukuro. Sometimes the couple will tell you how much they want in the invitation itself.
