Temporary Suspension of Maestro ATM Acceptance in Japan

We're notified that all Maestro-branded EMV cards issued outside of the Asia/Pacific region are temporarily unable to withdraw currency at domestic ATMs. We don't have any further information at this moment regarding when they'll reactivate it. So if you're planning to come to Japan in the near future, please be well-prepared such as bringing another brand card, etc.
