  • Hey, guys, how's it going?

  • My name is Michaela, and I have a bit of a problem.

  • Recently, when I'm out with friends, I drive them crazy with the fact that I'm completely unorganized.

  • I'm always the only one who has to buy a ticket for the train.

  • And I'm also one of those huge jerks who holds up huge lines on a cash register just so I can pay for things.

  • An exact change.

  • And what have we got in here?

  • It was like a ring 64 gigabyte SD card.

  • Not only that, but I hoard receipts like a pack rat.

  • I just can't throw them away because I keep thinking I'm gonna need them for something.

  • If this wallet is a reflection of my life, then I'm a complete mess.

  • Thankfully, in Japan, electronic money transfers are becoming more of a frequent thing, and they're becoming more convenient by the day.

  • Due to our Gen.

  • Nii mocha, originally designed just for transportation, I see cards are becoming a more widely accepted form of payment all over Japan.

  • To apply for one is simple and only takes a few seconds.

  • Unlike cash cards, which are usually applied for through the bank.

  • I see cards could be obtained at your local train station for a small fee.

  • Once you put some money on your I see card, you're free to use it.

  • Wherever I see, cards are accepted as a form of payment.

  • For me, that meant I could go shopping almost immediately.

  • E don't have any socks.

  • What beef e can't label.

  • I see cards were originally designed for transportation, with each company operating privately.

  • But now I see cards from any region of Japan are widely accepted across the country.

  • That means I can use my Fukuoka based Nemo CA card even to pay for train fare in Tokyo recently.

  • Even taxi companies allow I see cards as a method of payment.

  • Okay, you could help with this.

  • You focus on the bottom on it.

  • You must stop.

  • But wait.

  • What happens when you run out of money?

  • Luckily, charging and I see card is super convenient in Japan as well.

  • Ah, lot of people don't know this, but you can actually charge your I see card at a convenience store for knee mocha.

  • I use Lawson.

  • You might even come across one of these.

  • I see card charging machines.

  • But if all else fails, you can always charge your icy card at a train station on Jan.

  • After using my name OK card.

  • For only a month I managed to save up 190 points which turned into 190 yen which is almost enough for me.

  • Thio, take the train back home.

  • It definitely helps.

  • Keep things a little more organized.

  • Yes, I won't be needing these anymore.

  • What is your preferred method of payment in your country?

  • Do you prefer cash?

  • And you prefer to keep things on cards?

  • Let me know in the comments.

  • See you later.

  • Bye.

  • My name is Michaela.

  • And today I have a really important confession to make.

  • I I am in.

Hey, guys, how's it going?
