The banking system in Japan compared to most other developed nations is archaic at best. On the whole cash is king in this country but more and more places are accepting credit cards. Up here in the northern reaches of Japan it's probably worse than in big cities like Tokyo. Definitely change your money in the US into Yen, you'll get much better rates than you'd be able to get here.
