Japan is known for its flashing neon lights, huge crowds and tall buildings. However, the country is also deeply steeped in history, culture and artistic achievement. Museums featuring age-old artifacts and visual art and historical attractions are a vital part of the cultural entertainment industry in Japan. However, the modern country is also home to up-to-date, contemporary attractions to amuse and delight both tourists and natives.
some examples are:
Amusement parks are plentiful throughout the country, especially in Tokyo. Tokyo Disneyland is one of the most popular parks in Japan; it's essentially a duplicate of the the Anaheim park with a couple of small differences. For example, the park's Westernland is Japan's version of Frontier Land.

Japan is very cash oriented. Coins and banknotes account for 15 percent of national income compared to 6 percent in Germany and 3.5 percent in the United States. Credit cards are not as common in Japan as they are in United States. Japanese walk around with large amounts of cash and pay for most things with cash. Before making a large purchase, they are more likely to run to an ATM machine than use a credit card. ATM machines dispense up to $30,000 in yen
