    You can withdraw money at almost any Bank or ATM machine in Japan as long it has the same network symbol as your ATM card.

    Bring travellers cheques. The Canadian banks have representative offices in Tokyo, but they don't do retail business there. I wouldn't rely on a Japanese ATM network's compatibility with a Canadian network. When it comes to credit cards, not every merchant in Japan takes them. The bottom line is, it's best to have cash in Japan.

    Due to banking regulations, very few international banks have branches in Japan. You can use your ATM card to withdraw money. ATMs in 7-11 convenience stores, at post offices, and in Citibanks will accept international ATM cards; most other ATMs will not.

    You can also exchange travellers cheques and cash for Japanese yen at the airport (be sure to use a bank instead of a money changer store, you'll likely get a better rate).

    If there is PLUS or Cirrus marks on the back of your cash card, you would be able to withdraw cash at ATM of Japan Post office.

    ATMs are world wide, just look for the symbol that is on your card or get on of the new Visa cards. you put money on them but ther is a fee.
