Can you use Japanese or other foreign cards in a USA/UK tournament?

Yes you can with a few conditions:

If you are mixing Japanese and English cards, you must play in sleeves with opaque backings as the card backs are different and you can tell them apart very easily.

In a DCI tournament like Crawley and GenConUK the judges should know what the cards do. Although it's not essential it's good practice to have a 'local' language version, especially if disputes occur or you're trying to explain what a card does to a younger player.

To expand upon what Freddy said about a judge needing to know what the card does - the only way a judge will know what a card does is if it has been released by WotC so only foreign cards that have a WotC counterpart can be used (usually only Japanese cards fall into this category). There is always the Oracle that a judge can use.
