    Money Exchange
    Japanese public transport, stores and restaurants are legally forbidden to accept foreign currencies. You do need small amounts of yen currency for immediate needs. If you have foreign bank notes other than U.S. dollars, it is wise to convert some of them in to yen while at the airport. Traveller’s Checks can be cashed quickly at banks, but few stores or restaurants accept them. Unused yen (bank notes only; no coins) can be reconverted into foreign currencies at the airport with no limitation, provided the exchange centre has sufficient funds for re-conversion. For handling currency exchange, there are nine banks at the airport, with one or more open from 6 am to 11 pm.

    Japan Rail Pass Order Exchange
    You can obtain your Japan Rail Pass by exchanging your Exchange Order at the JR Information Counter in the International Arrivals Lobby (1st floor, open daily, 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.), the TiS-Travel Service Centre (open daily, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.), or the Green Window (Midori-no-Madoguchi) Reservations Ticket Office (open daily, 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.) at JR Kansai Airport Station. The date of validation of your Pass can be any day within 3 months of the issuing date of your Exchange Order. You can use the Pass for the JR train trip.
