Maybe Western Union at Daikokuya stores? https://www.e-daikoku.com/en/moneytransfer/store.html The rate isn’t great though. Since you’re a tourist, you can’t open a bank account - so better methods are not available to you. Alternatively you could exchange cash for something that holds its value and then convert it back to cash in Mexico. Maybe buying a vintage camera? If you take that route, look on Ebay to see what people are buying and how much they are paying.

I used transferwise in the past, it has the best rates. Transfers take a few days to arrive so it’s good if you’re not in a hurry.
Recently Japanese laws got stricter about sending money outside the country, so you might have to provide a copy of your ID
