LONDON – In Japan, the government pays much attention to development of the electronic payment system. That is why a number of initiatives have been taken over the recent years.

Besides, official authorities plan to launch a mobile payment application for overseas visitors in order to overcome the problem of non-acceptance of cards issued in foreign countries.

Some local banks intend to make their ATMs compatible with accept of credit cards issued overseas in order to enhance convenience for people coming from other countries. For instance, Mitsubishi UFJ is going to install more than 980 ATMs over the period 2016-2020.

The country expects to start welcoming 20 million tourists per annum by 2010, but this target will be achieved much earlier. In 2015, for instance, 19.7 million tourists visited the country.
