Foreign Bank Cards Accepted at 7-11 ATMs

It has just become easier to travel to Japan from abroad. In the past, it has been quite difficult for foreign tourists to access their money while they travel in Japan. “Seven Bank”, the bank affiliated with 7-11, started offering ATMS that are compatible with (some) foreign bank cards as of July 11, 2007.

From their press release:
* ATM displays and receipts will be available in English, Korean, Chinese, and Portuguese
* ATMs located in 7-11 stores which are widely available
* Access to cash virtually 24 hours a day
* ATMs available in Narita airport
