Money issues - Japan

Jump to last reply

Hello Japan experts, as our trip draws near, I'm checking to make sure I have all of the basic info I need. We plan to use ATMs to get cash. My notes say that the ATMs inside the airport terminal take US cards, as do ATMs in post offices and 7-11 stores. Do these ATMs generally have an upper limit of how much I can withdraw at a time? Could I, say, withdraw 100,000 yen? (My bank says the only limit on my withdrawals is how much money I have in my account.)

We will use a credit card to pay for accommodations and train tickets, but expect to use cash for most other things. Higher priced restaurants take credit cards, but little places do not. Is this accurate?

SUICA cards - I thought there was a SUICA deal with the limo bus, but I can't find it on the Limo bus website. The SUICA card is good at convenience stores and the the Tokyo subway. Can it be used in the Kyoto subway?

We plan to buy our train tickets for our whole stay at Narita. I have looked at endless maps of Terminal 2, but am unclear where we buy tickets. Do we go to the station underneath terminal 1 or is there a desk in terminal 2 on the arrival floor, like there is for the limo buses?

Thanks so much for all of your assistance!
