Yeah I should be able to find one I hope. Thanks.
FWIW, the 7/11 takes Plus as well as UnionPay. But not Cirrus.
Hopefully not a big deal. But it just drives me crazy!
My replacement card finally arrived - it has Maestro / Cirrus and EPS / Jetco on the back. I have feeling that you almost have to demand a Cirrus card now.
For Japan, Post Offices are the best place for ATMs, but be careful about their opening hours. See here. Also Citibank might accept them. See here.

I found a "Shinsei Bank" ATM with a Cirrus logo and it works. So crisis over and the Standard Chartered cards do work in Japan. If you have a UnionPay card, it will work in 7/11 only and I think nowhere else, whereas the Cirrus cards work at Shinsei and probably other places such as post office that people above have suggested. Thanks!
Maybe Japanese 7/11 ATMs only support the Visa/Plus not the MasterCard/Cirrus. Try to find an ATM in Post Office. They are normally good. Good luck!
The reason I am asking is because I am applying for a Cirrus SCB PB card. My current one carries UnionPay logo. I asked the branch if I could keep my old one once the new card arrives. They answered that the old one will cease to work once the new card is issued.
Can you please share your experience on this? Thanks.
I needed to return the card with the Union Pay logo before they would process my application for a Cirrus one.
I became a SCB customer today. The card they gave me does not have Cirrus on it, so I asked for one and was informed that it would be sent to me in about a week. Obviously this means the old card will be useless and has to be cut up.
P.S. - Any Excel Banking customers here? What the hell is Excel Banking?
