rolled /r/ in Japanese

hi all, I’m trying to have Kevin sing in Italian, and found out that if I choose Japanese as the language it’s already close… one thing though I can’t get, which is the rolled (trilled) r . Wondering if there is a phoneme that corresponds to a rolled r in the Japanese language… thank you for any help
