Tax rate became 8% recently in Japan. I think that’s necessary for Japan and it can’t be helped. People would get used to it soon. Before raising tax rate, everyone did last minutes shopping. I bought contact lens. Today, I went to McDonald to have 100 yen burger. There are 100 yen= 1$ menus. Potion isn’t so big but for me it’s good. My husband and I ordered 3 burgers and two cups of coffee. And it comes to 500 yen including tax. This is great because they didn’t change the price. It’s customers-friendly !
