    Editor’s Comment: Tourists –not suspected terrorists – will have to give their fingerprints to travel, shop and stay in Japan, making clear that the future will use your own body to control your actions in society. Control is the future, unless we avert it.

    There is every attempt to force a global society into using biometrics to ID and complete all transactions. If they succeed, it is a society where rights will be abolished, every transaction is monitored and privacy is an insider’s joke about the past. Subsequently, the population will become completely dependent on the system for their livelihoods.

    More Cashless Society: Japan to Force All Tourists to Use Fingerprints as Currency

    by Melissa Dykes

    Ever wanted to visit Japan?

    Well be prepared to give your fingerprints as currency practically everywhere you go when you do.

    According to fresh reports like this one out of Japan News:

    Starting this summer, the government will test a system in which foreign tourists will be able to verify their identities and buy things at stores using only their fingerprints.

    The government hopes to increase the number of foreign tourists by using the system to prevent crime and relieve users from the necessity of carrying cash or credit cards. It aims to realize the system by the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.

    The experiment will have inbound tourists register their fingerprints and other data, such as credit card information, at airports and elsewhere.


    Some banks, like the Aeon Bank, already forgo ATM cards for fingerprints in Japan.

    Now everywhere a tourist could spend money, from the hotels they sleep in to the stores they buy stuff in, will come equipped with a special device that will require them to place two fingers on a pad and have their fingerprint scanned and verified as if they are a criminal in order just to buy something.

    The data, managed by the government, will be converted to “anonymous big data” to “devise policies on tourism”.

    The government hopes “the experiment,” which will start in 300 hotels and shops, will be successful and spread across the entire country by 2020 when people from all over the world will be visiting Japan for the Olympics.

      1. Fuck japan!!

      2. Relax, at this rate by 2020,people will only just have overcome the dysentery from going to Brazil; white rice will be all they can eat.

        • Who in the hell wants to visit the land of the rising radiation?

          • FP, no shit, stay Faaarrr away from that shithole! They can have my assprint and thats about it.

      3. If it works over there, expect it here eventually…

        Be well all…

        • second.

          coming here eventually. banks and govt need to restrict freedoms and you grabbing “your” money is one of them.

          I’d imagine fingerprint scanners on ATMs in the usa within 3 years and shortly thereafter are mandatory to get your money.

      4. I’m not planning on going to Japan, but if I was and this was required, I would cancel my trip. On a side note, BOA just sent us a new credit card saying that an anonymous merchant we used it at was hacked and all their data was compromised. When we questioned them about which merchant, we were told that they could not say who it was. They were not allowed to release any info on them. Makes me wonder who they are trying to protect and why? Could it be that BOA was themselves hacked?

        • Many people wont do it. I wont.

          On another story, I went to Wallmart today and they are apparently stopping and checking for receipts again. Using illegals to do the work….

          I used to just pass the line and walk out the door. Usually they just stare at me but sometimes they chase me down demanding to see my receipt. I ask them if the checker made a mistake or something. They always say no we just need to see the receipt its company policy. I tell them I dont work for wall mart and walk away. They are usually dumb founded.
          A year ago I was stopped by the manager of the store and he threatened to call the cops. I told him to do so because I was trying to save minutes on my phone so I could press charges. I gave my Lawyer a call just in case and he wrote me up a nice letter threatening law suit and criminal complaint if they detain me without cause again. I brought a copy to the manager and he almost fainted.
          The receipt checkers disappeared after that. But I guess there is a new manager. The fun begins again.

          • They still do a receipt check here in Florida, but only for loose items. If everything is bagged, they wave you on, but if you have some unbagged bulk item, they want to see a receipt for it.

            • In that case there is a chance I might do it. But when they want to see everyones receipt, just because, they have crossed the line. Its my own personal fight.

              • Ed and JAS, I think it’s wallyworld’s policy to check for receipts on large items unbagged going out the door, like TVs, appliances, furniture, etc. I’ve seen that happening in wallyworld as long as they’ve been in my area going back to the 90s. But if they’re demanding to see receipts for EVERYTHING now, that’s definitely something different.

                • I think part of it may be a check on their own workers. And there are a lot of determined thieves.

                  I know of someone back in the 1970s who wanted a stereo system. He was less than sober and went into a Nichols department store. He picked up a stereo and just carried it out the front door and to his car. Then he made two more trips to get the speakers. Nobody stopped him. His father made him take everything back and apologize.

                  • The receipt check is one reason I don’t shop at Costco either. Any store that treats you like a criminal won’t get my business.

                    Also, just don’t comply. Only sheeple would willingly comply with that. There is no law mandating you show your receipt after shopping anywhere. Company Policy doesn’t apply to customers. Fuck ’em.

      5. Japan? Nope.

      6. F#$% the Japs and whoever else adopts this NWO shit. I won’t follow it.

      7. Fingerprints are easily hacked, especially with 3d printers.
        There are some things which might work biometrically (the eye), but not fingerprints.

      8. They just throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks.

        I personally have eaten plenty Jap food to include their snacks and candy. As they say; to know a culture you must sample their cuisine. Ergo, based on my experience having sampled their everyday foods . . . Japan sucks.

        Whale meat anyone?

      9. Fingerprinting is not one hundred per cent fool proof. Neither is DNA.

      10. Guess I won’t ever be visiting Japan.

        • Too bad. I will miss the lovely Japanese ladies and their sideways vaginas!

      11. Have you ever seen in the movies when the bad guys chop off a finger or a hand or even pull an eyeball out of someones head to use it to gain access to something valuable that is guarded by a BIOMETRIC LOCK …?! Just sayin’…

        • uh oh… ‘Genius’ would be in big trouble….

          [ ref: above post: “They can have my assprint and thats about it” ]

          • Tourists that choose this payment option won’t be robbed of thier cash, they’ just be robbed of thier fingers…

      12. Peace and safety. The SPIN that just won’t go away.

      13. Get used to it. It comes in the guise of ‘protecting’ you & will be introduced in the US soon enough…

      14. Wow, did anyone read that a tourist would be ABLE to use this system? No where was it suggested in the original article that it would be required. Somehow the writer made a fantastic leap suggesting that the user would have thier fingerprint scanned for any purchase. Japanese use of cash is incredible, the common guy on the street uses cash for damn near everything, even paying rent (personal checking is all but non-existing).

        Relax, while it may be offered as a “high tech solution” to pay / the latest, greatest, coolest way to pay for whatever… paying with cash will still be an option for the visitor.

        To the fantasy writer of the headline, I would challenge them to show any evidence…ANY at all…. that Japan will “force” tourists to use this feature.

        I lost a bit of respect for this web site after reading this nonsense.

        • To read the full article without the silly fantasy headline about forcing use of fingerprint

          See below:

          ht tp://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0002859676

          • Things like this are by choice.
            In the beginning.
            but soon enough…….
            (insert evil laugh here)

            • Perhaps that is the fear. However, my issue is that the story ended up being a lie. The headline a complete fantasy. The writer just decided to weave a tale by “cherry picking” a few facts from the legitimate story, then added the false assumptions/lies that any part was mandatory. Never did the writer state that perhaps a visitor to Japan might be fingerprinted sometime in the future.

              Headline says Japan forces visitors (lie) to use fingerprints (lie) on ALL transactions (another lie, and complete fantasy)

              • You beat me to it. A system that is only being rolled out in 300 locations can’t be a mandatory form of payment. It would cut off too many places of business from potential customers. However, I don’t like the precedent it sets, especially with the sheep like mindset that most millenials seem to have towards technology and security. 5-10 years from now, when they are entering their prime earning years, who will take up the fight for liberty?

      15. Not going there!!!!!\

      16. What happens if you have no fingerprints? Years ago I had an accident in a laboratory that I own and do not have readable fingerprints. Although my hands healed my fingerprints are basically useless. Should’ve seen the time I was arrested on a minor charge (later dropped) and the cops tried to fingerprint me. After three of them tried and only got smudges of black ink, they gave up. Hmmm…maybe I will go to Japan just to have some fun with them.

        • Most people over 50 have trouble with digital fingerprint readers. For a large percent of them the scanners won’t work at all.

          It’s a stupid technology. Any government that endorses is it nuttier than Obama, and he’s nuttier than squirrel shiit.

      17. Why couldn’t I have been born in the 50’s?

      18. Sounds good to me….with how easy bad groups & people do things, doesn’t leave much option…

      19. So… just got back from Japan and it was great. Used cash exclusively except for two purchases during the visit. Beautiful place and wonderful hospitality towards us when we were there. Got index finger scanned at the pont of entry at the airport. I have no problem with that. Their folks were positively cheery compared to our TSA. We, here in the states, are always hearing about the Japanese recession. Well, you couldn’t tell by looking- every storefront filled. Japanese doing cleaning, gardening, street work, etc. No immigrants per se. I saw 1 black person and about 5 burkas while I was there.

        I completely “get” why they want increased security for the olympics, using a system they already use for entry that works well. You couldn’t pay me though to go back at a crowded time. It is one of the most densely populated countries on earth, and although they move people well, it can be a learning curve for foreigners.

      20. Look at the graphic that accompanies this article. It’s all about data collection. What is done with the data? That’s the real story.

      21. Hahaha! Like someone wants to go to that place after Fukashima…they should be paying people to visit!

      22. Fingerprints are a very bad idea because once your fingerprint is out there, it can be used by others. Your fingerprints cannot be changed but passwords can be, so one can change it regularly or if needed.

        The other problem is the same reason the FBI repeatedly rejected my fingerprints when I was being credentialed for driving students in a bus. I burned my right index print when I was little and the whorl in the center is gone, a rough scar. And I smashed my right thumb with a sledge hammer years ago and the leather glove I was wearing literally pulled the skin apart, tearing a whole section of my thumb print into taters. There is now a large round scar over half the right side of the print. The FBI does not apparently accept that some people have scars on their fingerprints, particularly their right index finger and right thumb. After I sent is the third set of prints, which required going each time to the local city detective department, the FBI return letter, oddly, did not contain a deadline for sending in the next set of prints. So, I never did.

      23. And soon afterward, numerous reports surfaced of naked and traumatized tourists being found dumped off in remote locations all over Japan, after having their fingers chopped off and being held captive for a few days. None of the tourists were able to “thumb” a ride or pick their noses, nor “point out” their abductors to authorities.. All reported their bank accounts and credit card balances had mysteriously changed…Authorities have no explanation for the new crime wave…but some are pointing fingers…
