I have found the exchange rate offered by my bank for utilizing my ATM  
card for Yen to be favorable.  (Using Chase in US, 7-Bank/7-11 Japan).

Usual caveat of call your bank and advise them of your travel plans so  
you do not find the transaction declined.  I also have not been  
charged any ATM usage surcharge in the past.
