    Recruit a teller to help if you have trouble. If it'll be recurring, get the card.

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    open a modern bank account and do your banking online.

    In all seriousness, there are a few youtube walk-throughs. Just use google. As long as you have the required info, its pretty hard to screw up. At least for most functional adults.

    But I do second Ini's advice - get an account at a bank where you can do them online.

    Yeah, I hate JP bank. I miss online banking, it's so easy to do my UK accounts with it...

    There are a few. I use JapanNetBank, which is pretty nice and very near western banks where modern tech is concerned. It's still easier for me to use my old bank, though (already have all my bills pulled from it, paycheck is deposited into it, etc.; just not worth the trouble of switching completely), even though they're frozen in the mid-nineties.

    Oh there are better banks. But it's not like you get internet banking (with international transfer) and visa/mastercard/americanexpress on signup. Still can't use Japanese banks with paypal either.

    I have both a master card and a visa which the system is supposed to be able to take, but can't get it to accept either of my cards for some reason.

    International transfer... no. I did get a Visa debit card on signup, though. And PayPal is problematic but I can use them with my J-credit card (when I have to--I hate PayPal).

    I'm not trying to do an international at this point in time, just an internal. International will come much later.

    AFAIK if you want to use Paypal with a Japanese bank account, you need to open a Japanese Paypal account. The same shitty restrictions that apply to bank transfers stop Paypal from working with Japanese banks.

    And direct international transfers from banks bleed you on fees worse than some of the other services anyways. Also, I'm not sure if your trying to do this or not, but you can't furikomi from anything but cash or a Japanese bank account.

    If your Visa/Mastercard aren't working, contact your card issuer and see if they've restricted international transactions or put a different hold on your account. Visa gets hold-happy if you get anywhere near your transaction limit or if you haven't had international transactions allowed on your card. Just be happy that Japanese ATM don't willfully eat cards the way some US ATMs do.

    I got it sorted, turns out that JP bank ATM's can do internal bank transfers in english. And I'm not sending any money home that way, the way I'm doing it currently has no fees.

    AFAIK, its only when you put in a foreign card that drops you on the screen with the only option to make an international withdrawal/balance inquiry. For furikomi in English you still have to put the bank details in with katakana, right?

    Nope, in english. Only Katakana bit is double checking the name of the reciever.
