Coming summer Japan is set to introduce fingerprint currency. With this new innovation, tourists visiting Japan won't need to change their money up. After having their identity verified, visitors will then be able to buy things from shops with a flash of their finger when their card details have been processed.
It is also hoped the system could replace the need to present a passport when checking in at hotels
The Japanese government are introducing the project in bid to encourage visitors from abroad in the lead up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.
