ATMs in Japan

ACL'03 attendees should be aware that most Japanese ATMs are not connected to US and European banking networks, so it may be wise not to rely solely on ATMs for obtaining cash in Japan. Visa and Mastercard are usually accepted at major restaurants and hotels, but you may wish to use travellers checks, cash advances on credit cards or other means to obtain cash while visiting Japan.


In Japan, there is no need to give tips anywhere including hotels, restaurants and taxis where people usually give tips in other countries.
