What is your best tip if I am going to Japan?

I would say be sure to have plenty of cash.
Although there are more and more Japanese businesses that accept Visa card and Master Card there are still many shops and restaurants that prefer cash.

It is often shops where you can buy food, beverages or personal items that do not cost very much. Here I think of a spring water, cup of coffee, a little lunch or objects that cost less than $ 20.

You can expect that shops or restaurants outside tourist areas do not accept Visa card and it is regardless of the size of the amount.
