Visit Japan: The Money in Japan Explained for Tourists

What tourists should know about money in Japan.
Heading to Japan and Not Sure About the Money? Well the use the Yen in Japan. You will see it in coins and bills and you can use cards in a number of locations. Your biggest problem will be finding an ATM that accepts non-Japanese cards. To fight that you will need to visit ATMs at convenience stores.
Cash is king in Japan, but you can also use your Suica and Pasmo metro cards to pay for a number of products as well.
When you pay for your meal at a restaurant you do not pay the waiter directly. You may pay at the register when you leave. Also you don’t tip in Japan.
