While it is important to always have a bit of cash in your pockets when travelling in Japan it is less relevant to have it when in Tokyo, as you can make almost all payments by credit card or IC card, however this changes significantly when you head to rural Japan or even Kyoto. If you need to pay for a taxi, it will have to be done in cash unless you use a transportation app such as uber. 


In case you run out of cash while in Japan, you can always head over to any convenience store (Lawson, 7-eleven, Family Mart) since they all have an ATM machine to withdraw cash however the minimum you can withdraw is 10000 Japanese Yen, but do not worry you can always locate a Japanese post office where you can withdraw as little as 1000 Yen.
