    Nah, they directed me to some coin shop with a worse rate.

    Yeah, for Americans, banks will usually be able to do it if you give them a week notice or two. They need to order the yen, but since you're their customer they (hopefully) won't hit you with a crazy fee to change it.

    Most major banks in MURIKA will hit you with a pretty nasty charge, or at least Chase will. Chase was only going to give me 72 yen to the dollar. Everything I've read suggests that Japanese ATMs, the post office and Narita exchange terminals are a much better rate.

    I called my bank a couple days ago and they were only offering 70.5 yen/dollar and on top of that, they want to charge a $15 shipping fee (and I have to go to the bank to pick it up). Should I look elsewhere?

    If you live in Bumfuk, that will probably be as good as it gets. If you can get to a major city, some banks keep the currency on hand.

    Look at Wells Fargo's website. They offer currency exchange online.
