Posted in: In cash-loving Japan, banks still busy despite coronavirus See in context

I think that most of modern Japanese may go to bank if it is needed such as loan, changing contract, open specific accounts etc. A lot of ATM machines are available at super markets, convenience stores, 7 eleven etc. So, they can windrow and deposit cash... It is certain that there are a lot of people in Japan who are not familiar with other newer payment method, especially digital payments. As government has started max 5% return when they use cashless payment in many shops, I expect that it may be a good opportunity for them to change the way of payment.
