When you visit Japan, you can use your VISA, MASTER CARD and AMEX like you do back home with exception of ... people may ask you following question.
"Do you want to pay it at once?"
What is that mean? Why do they ask that question?
Well, unlike credit cards in the US, Japanese credit cards require you to pay 100% every month except you ask your merchant to charge it over period of months. いっかつ means, you pay full amount at the end of the month.
Since you are from other countries, this does not apply to any of you. But this is something you should know about it.

One of the most beautiful things when you visit Japan is that there are many things that are new being coexisting with old things. Tokyo was burned to the ground toward the end of the World War II, but Japan rebuilt itself. But they kept a lot of old things. Amazing accomplishment.
Since 1996, Japanese-Online has been provided as a free service from PSPINC with the purpose of providing resources to individuals interested in learning about the Japanese Language and culture.
Japanese-Online has content suited to varying levels of study, including lessons for beginners as well as lessons tailored for those who need grammar and writing resources. Lessons are best suited to those who have basic understanding of hiragana and katakana alphabets before moving on to the more advanced grammar and particle lessons. Grammar lessons focus on learning about writing and creating more complex sentences and most lessons will not use romaji (Japanese sounds written with roman letters). Kanji is used in the lessons with hiragana and English translations provided.
