Sweden is said to be the first country failing cash in the world. The percentage that people pay by cash in their daily lives appears to be 3 percent. The number is clearly smaller than that of us, 9 percent. 
People think that paying credit card is much more convenient and safer. Practically, the number of cash robbers has decreased from 12 per to 3 per. 
In contrast to Sweden, Japan is still a cash-oriented country. Despite an increase of card users, small local shops have remained to run their businesses without card reading machines. However, sooner or later, such shops will be involved in the card    tide as the society becomes technological. Some people must want to feel the appreciation to cash though. That is because cash makes them think that the money belong to them.
