Compared to other major developed countries, Japan has so far been slow in going cashless, and currently the Japanese government is stepping up its efforts to increase penetration.
To support this effort, Rakuten Payment, Inc. launched a project team from August 2018 to promote cashless payments in Fukuoka City. The team has successfully laid the groundwork to enable use of Rakuten Pay in various places around the city, from Fukuoka Airport to main commercial facilities, shopping avenues, street vendors, and taxi companies.

RNN went to Fukuoka to find out how Rakuten Pay use is spreading within the city, by speaking to locals on the street as well as staff members of Rakuten Payment, Inc.

In the first part of a two-part report, catch interviews with Rakuten Pay users in Fukuoka, who tell us what prompted them to use the service, as well as where and how they use it.
