Half Of Tokyoites Prefer To Swipe Instead Of Counting

According to an online survey polling 2250 Tokyo shoppers, over half prefer to use electronic money cards instead of cold hard cash or other tender. Will a similar trend follow in Australia when such cards become commonly issued?

It's notable that there are "over 130 million e-money cards issued", which amounts to "more than enough for Japan's estimated population of 127 million citizens". I wonder why only about half appear to prefer using the prepaid e-money cards when there are enough for everyone out there. 'Fess up. Who's hogging the cards? [NIKKEI]
