Hi guys! today I’d like to introduce you to a card that will boost up the fun with lots of benefits, freebies and discounts you can enjoy during your next trip in Kansai. This is something that you should not miss out, “dPoint Card”.
What is dPoint card?
To put simply, this is a point card from Docomo which is one of the well-known mobile network provides in Japan. This card is made especially for foreigners who are in Japan. You can get this card and become a membership for free.

Free 300 points
First of all, you will get 300 points right from the start. Basically, you can use these points as actual 300 yen to buy anything from shops, restaurants, convenient stores or supermarkets that accept dpoint payment. You will know from the dpoint logo in front of the store or cashier machine.
Moreover, when you buy something at affiliate stores and shops, just show your dPoint at the cashier. Every 100 yen is equal to 1 point collected in your card which you can use at the next payment.
300 points campaign is available until 31 march 2021
These are some examples where you can get and use point with dPoint cards. The best part is you can use this card at any store in Japan.
For me, I think convenient store chains are the easiest to find since there are everywhere in Japan. Make sure not to forget to show your card during the payment more than 200 yen.
If you are living in Japan and close by this supermarket chain, well you are in luck. You will be able to collect points very fast since you are going to buy your grocery quite a lot.
If you are hungry, this card still got you covered. Here are some of the famous chain restaurants which also can be found everywhere at department stores and major train stations.
