What is this?
This is a card called "Tasupo".
If you want to buy a carton of cigarets by a vending machine, you need to identify being old enough by using this card.
Otherwise you have to go to a cigarette shop.
The new rule starts from July 1st.
In Japan there are so many various vending machines including cigarets.
All cigaret vending machines are equipped of age identification function using Tasupo.
