Re: No cash in Tokyo!

I don't think many of the department stores will accept traveller's cheques - it's not a common practice outside North America, is it?

As for places that will change traveller's cheques - you might get lucky and find an exchange office in Shinjuku Station... but that's just an idea, don't take my word for it.

If it wasn't Sunday, you could try the Amex office...

The address for the American Express agent is:

Nippon Travel Agency Co. Ltd

2-5-1 Kyobashi


Tokyo, Japan 104-0031

(though it looks like it's only open Monday to Friday)

I think, on balance, you're much better off using a cash machine.
