Hi

Are credit cards VISA (issued by a bank in Europe) generally accepted in Japan? Has any of you faced any problem not having his VISA accepted?

Thanks

Yes, visa together with JCB are probably the most widely accepted cards in Japan. Just be aware of any foreign transaction fees charged by your issuing bank.

The only time I've had trouble with my (US issued) card was when trying to get gas more than once in a day. I called my bank to find out about that and they said it was a Japan-side issue.
