Japan - Best way to take currency?

Tue, 02/24/2009 - 09:01

Anyone got any advice on the best way to take currency to Japan?  Dollars? Yen? or Travellers cheques (sterling? dollars?).  Or is having your debit card enough to keep you going?

It used to be very difficult to withdraw cash from ATM's in Japan using non-Japanese cards, but this is no longer the case. Many ATM's - often located in small convienience stores - take debit cards with Maestro and/or Cirrus logos.

Further information can be found on the Japan Guide website: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2208.html

If taking cash I would recommend Yen and not US Dollars.
