Are credit cards widely accepted? Would you recommend bringing cash or credit cards?
Most stores and restaurants accept credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard, but travelers should keep in mind that Japan is still a cash culture. In particular, small stores and guest houses may only accept cash. It is recommended that you have Japanese Yen cash ready before you arrive in Japan. Upon arrival in Japan, ATMs can be found everywhere in Japan and can be used as needed.
