How common is Visa Paywave or Master Paypass in Japan nowadays?

Anyone know based on your recent payment experience at shops, malls etc?

just back from Hokkaido ... only a couple of transactions used contactless & a few used chip.

Most merchants/cashier still prefer using swipe & sign. They may have the chip/contactless reader but swiping is still predominant.

Even AEON was swipe ... but Nishimatsuya (chain store selling kids clothes) able to accept contactless, after Sales Staff said he will try as he has not done so before ... haha

Kombini can use contactless. In fact most of the bigger stores and malls can but some of the staff are not trained or maybe "afraid" to do something wrong.
