How to handle cash in Japan

Jump to last reply

We're planning to use mainly cash for our upcoming two week trip in April.

How do you experienced Japan travelers get and use cash? Should we bring dollars with us to use or try to use ATMs to get cash? We have a Schwab checking account with no foreign transaction fees. I've read that finding ATMs is not as easy in Japan as it is in Europe. True?

Should we change some dollars to yen at the airport when we arrive? We're heading straight to Hotel Nikko at Kansai airport the first night.

Thanks for the help
