Currency Exchange → Seven Eleven ATM
You can withdraw Japanese yen from your account using 7-Eleven ATMs. There are very few places where you can exchange your country’s banknotes for Japanese yen.
7-Eleven is open 24 hours a day, safe and secure, and you can buy food, drinks, alcohol, and cigarettes. If you don’t know how to use it, the store staff will kindly teach you.
Cash payments are common in Japan
In Japan, credit cards can be used for payment, but some private shops only accept cash. Donations to the gods of the shrine are cash only. Cash is often needed in Japan, so withdraw a little more Japanese yen from the ATM.
In Japan, overseas smartphone payments and cashless payments may not work well. Cashless payment in Japan is delayed spread, and you can pay with credit card or cash.
If you want to withdraw Japanese yen in Fujiyoshida City, we recommend searching Seven Bank ATM(セブン銀行ATM) on Google Maps.

No TIP in Japan
There is no TIP culture in Japan. In Japanese restaurants, there is no space for TIP, and there is no need to hand the TIP over.
There is a culture of TIP(called “Kokoro-Zuh-keh":心付け) private tour guides and Ryokan staff who have been very helpful, but it is not compulsory. Even if you don’t give a TIP, you can tell your feelings well just by expressing your gratitude in words.
※Japanese people are not accustomed to receiving TIPs, so they will be very very super happy if they receive TIPs.(You can give TIPs to hotel staffs and tourist guides, but you shouldn’t give it to convenience stores staff or restaurants staff. There is a little problem in relation to the law that pays salaries.)
The happiest thing for Japanese people is that you return home safely with happy memories without getting hurt, stolen, or in trouble. Japanese people don’t like to cause problems and Japanese don’t like to make others feel pain and sad.
I wish you safe travels.
