[Currency Exchange]

Only Japanese yen is acceptable at stores and restaurants in Japan. You can exchange money at the airport, foreign exchange banks, and other authorized exchanges upon presentation of your passport. We encourage you to exchange your money at the airport upon arrival.

[Credit Cards and Traveler's Cheques]

Visa, Master Card, American Express, Diners Club and JCB are widely accepted at hotels, department stores, shops and restaurants. Only major banks and hotels in principal cities can accept traveler's cheques, but their use in Japan is not as common as in some other countries.

[Banking]

Most banks are available for foreign currency exchange transactions from 9:00 to 15:00 on weekdays.

[Tipping]

There is no custom of tipping in Japan. Instead, at places such as restaurants, bars and hotels, a 10% service charge is usually added to your bill.

[Insurance]

Participants are advised to procure their own travel insurance, as the Organizing Committee will assume no responsibility for personal accidents, sickness, theft or property damage.

[Electrical Appliances]

Japan operates on 100 volts for electrical appliances. The frequency is 50 Hz in Estern Japan.

[Tax]

8% consumption tax will be added to your bill. The consumption tax is included in the price quote.
