Can I use my debit card in Japan to withdraw money from ATMs in Japan?

Okay, so my friend's mom is really freaking me out. I'm in Japan right now, and I have enough money to last a while but I purposely did not withdraw all of it. In order to get by towards the end of my trip I have to be able to withdraw money from the ATM. Worse comes to worse my mom can mail it.

In order to get by towards the end of my trip I have to be able to withdraw money from the ATM. Worse comes to worse my mom can mail it. Before I left for my trip I put my mom's name on my checking account, which is linked to my ATM card. I also alerted TD Bank that I would be in Japan, and I know they registered it.
Anyway...so my friend's mom was saying because my card does not have a "plus" or "star" on it, then I won't be able to use it.
But the thing is that my debit card is Visa and TD Bank would have told me if I couldn't use it, right?
What kind of ATMs can I use it at? Any ATM? Or does it have to be a specific kind?
