JCB is a global payment brand and a leading credit card issuer and acquirer in Japan. Since they began their international expansion in 1991, they have built up a total 89 million cardmembers in 19 countries and territories. The card is widely accepted by around 29 million merchants and over a million cash advance locations in 190 countries and territories.
Of the more than 20 million international JCB cardmembers visiting Japan each year, many head to Fukuoka in Kyushu, western Japan and one of the most popular destinations for international tourists. Records show that the number of visitors to Kyushu is growing, with more than 1.7 million visitors from January to August 2015, most of whom entered through Fukuoka Airport.
