ATMs in Yudanaka

Another important piece of information that may save your life

So I showed you where to go to for exchanging your money if you ever get caught short of Yen when you really need them while in Yudanaka.

Please read this in Foreign Currency Exchange in Yudanaka

But what if you don’t have a cash but need to withdraw some off an ATM?

There is 1 commercial bank in Yudanaka

As far as I’m aware, there are 2 options for you.

ATMs in Yudanaka

1, Lawson


There is a convenience store called “Lawson” ローソン, a few minutes walk from Yudanaka Station.

Inside this store, on your left once you walk in, there is an ATM.

Normally most of those convenience stores are open 24/7, year-round.

2, Post Office


In Japan, Post Offices (which is run by the government) also does banking service therefore they have ATMs.

Their symbol is shown in the first photo above. It’s in red, “T” with another bar above, quite a common sight in Japan. You see this symbol everywhere on streets, maps and so on.

It’s 5 min walk from the station.

And you’ll see it right there through the first glass door.

They are open between,

Weekdays: 9am – 5pm.

Closed on Saturdays and Sundays

3, Hachijuni Bank 八十二銀行

Please be aware that it’ll take longer than what this google maps says because you can’t actually walk across the station but you have to walk around it!

Their Opening Hours are,

Weekdays: 8:45am – 9pm

Saturdays and Sundays: 9am – 7pm

Things to be aware

It is quite common for Convenience Stores, Japanese banks and Post Office to charge you commissions (normally around ¥100) for transactions.

That charge could be even higher if the transaction gets made after normal business hours or over the weekend.

So as I mentioned in “Exchanging Money In Yudanaka” post,

Preparation is the best protection

So as long as the money goes in Japan, always carry them, lots of them with you just in case.

Credit Card payments are not as readily available as you would think.

Hope this will save some of your lives!

See you next time.
