[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.


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


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.
