~Duty Free Shops(JP:MenZeiTen)~
Generally many big electronics retail stores (JP:Kaden-Ryouhanten) and Big Supermarkets like Ito-Yokado and Aeon have Duty-Free Shop(Tax Free).

And such stores accept payments by Credit card and Debit card. 


~Tips~
In Japan,usually drinkable tap water and toilet are free if you are guest or customer at restaurant.(except exclusive restaurant )


Michelin Guide 2009 Tokyo Restaurants & Hotels (Michelin Guides)


So except private small shops and automat(JidouHanbaiKi/JihanKi) of drinks like Cora,I think tourist do not need so much Japanese Yen cash (bank note and small coin).

If you are staying in Japan as a tourist and you do not want to save a pretty penny(coins),to do pay with Credit card like VISA/MASTER/JCB brand or Debit card is better for you.

Therefore if you want to pay with card,ask to the staff to pay with card before payment is better.
