Key Highlights
- The Japanese government undertook a number of initiatives to encourage electronic payments during the review period (2011–2015). As part of its Regional Revitalization policy launched in June 2014, the government urged banks to enhance the scope of domestic automatic teller machines (ATMs) to make them compatible with overseas-issued payment cards, due to a rise in inbound tourists. In January 2016, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry announced plans to launch a mobile payment (m-payment) app for foreign visitors. Consumers can register passport and credit card details in the app, and make payments at retail outlets using mobile phones.

- To increase convenience for foreign travelers, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking, Mitsubishi UFJ and Mizuho Bank announced plans to make their ATMs compatible with foreign issued credit cards. Presently, only a few banks in Japan provide ATMs that accept overseas cards for cash withdrawals. As part of the plan, Mitsubishi UFJ will install 1,000 ATMs over 2016–2020. Sumitomo Mitsui Banking also plans to install 1,000 ATMs by the end of March 2017.

- The government aims to welcome 20 million tourists a year by 2020, but is expected to surpass the target well before this date, as a total of 19.7 million tourists visited Japan in 2015. To encourage tourism, the government abolished tax for foreign travelers on confectionery, cosmetics, food, alcohol and medicinal items from October 2014. According to the new law, tourists spending US$47.2 (JPY5,000) or above at specified merchants are eligible for the tax exemption.
