The currency of Japan is the yen. Cash still plays a major role in Tokyo, although more places accept credit cards now. Travel IC cards such as Suica and PASMO are also common forms of cashless payment. You may be surprised at how many places accept cash only, so it's a good idea to bring enough currency or withdraw money when you arrive, especially if traveling with a large group.
Most major Japanese banks accept international cards at their ATMs. Post office ATM are another option. Convenience store ATMs, like the Seven Bank ATMs in 7-Eleven stores also accept a wide variety of international cards.
