Some alcohol and tobacco prices to rise in Japan next monthDo you by chance have a reference for this?
I know that taxes have gone from 8% to 10%, unless you used credit where it was still 8% until I believe June or July of 2020, giving cardholders a year of essentially saving 2%. However, that extended period is over and it's now 10% regardless. I think it just so happened to be coincidental to land in the middle of a pandemic, but the "red tag" signs were posted since around October 2019.
