Doesn’t seem so long ago…

When I came to Japan, smoking was allowed on train platforms, children went to school on Saturday mornings and I was paid in cash each month….so I can remember some of these.

    Interestingly, employees of companies being paid in cash for their wages was still common in Japan until only around 2000, when everyone pretty much switched to pay checks or direct deposit into the employee’s banking account.
