What are travelers checks? Whats a tourist card? Do i need them for my trip overseas to Japan?

Okay so im going overseas to Japan with my bestfriends. Im 17 yrs and and my bestfriends are both 18. Lately ive heard a lot about needing travelers checks and tourist cards but i dont know what they are! :| Can anyone please help me figure out what they are and am i going to need to go from Texas to Japan?
Also what are telephone cards? I heard you need them to make calls from overseas. Where can i get them? How much do they cost?

Traveller's cheques are like a bank note that you can exchange for money at a bank or money changer or use at some shops (ones that deal with many tourists, or in airports). They're becoming very rare these days as they're a bit of a hassle, but they do have the advantage that you can cancel and have them replaced if they're stolen and you've written down the serial numbers somewhere safe. It's generally easier to just take two different credit cards and keep them in different places so that they don't both get stolen, though if you have trustworthy friends you can agree to borrow money from each other if anything goes wrong. Withdrawing money using a card and any ATM on the street is loads easier and works pretty much everywhere in the world if you have a Visa or Cirrus card.

I've no idea what a tourist card is, unless it's some sort of discount thingy - but you don't need one for Japan.

Telephone cards are a good way to make cheap overseas calls - payphones and hotel phones charge extortionate rates and are best avoided. You can buy phone cards in convenience stores pretty much everywhere. Ask the shopkeeper what the best one is for calling to the USA as rates vary per card - assuming you or someone you know can speak enough Japanese or the international mime language to communicate this. Usually they come in denominations of about $10 (probably 1000 Yen) which are good for one call of more hours than you'd know what to do with, or several calls of increasingly short duration - they have a flag fall that may consume an hour of your advertised call time, so they're not great for making lots of short calls.

If you have a GSM cell phone (one with a SIM card) you may be able to have global roaming enabled and use it there, though the rates for receiving and making calls will be very high so save it for emergencies and the text messages (which will also cost you more!). Not sure about CDMA in Japan. If you're going for a long time and need to make many calls it might be worth buying a cheap phone and prepaid card over there.
