Where To Find ATMs in Japan

Typically, I head for a bank when looking for an ATM. Not so in Japan.

I just returned and had three bank machines spit my ATM card back out at me. It wasn't until I read the helpful hints on a foldout map I picked up that I learned international ATMs can be found at post offices and 7-11s.

While wandering one of the multitude of shopping arcades, I came across a 7-11. As promised, inside was a clearly labeled international ATM and my withdrawal of yen went quickly and smoothly.
