re:Dine Ginza

re:Dine GINZA, the first of its kind in Japan, is a restaurant which offers a coworking space for professional chefs.

The restaurant can seat a total of 120 people and is equipped with a very large sectionalized kitchen that accommodates up to five chefs. This means you can enjoy and compare the cuisine of five different chefs at one same venue! At the end of the evening, you can even vote for the chef's cuisine you enjoyed the most.
The idea of the shared kitchen model is to act as a business incubator, allowing chefs to try out different things in a real restaurant setting before actually establishing their restaurant independently. This allows you to try new and creative cuisine.

Cashless at re:Dine GINZA

re:Dine Ginza, uses a practical and innovative payment method called 'Pocket Change'. In fact, the restaurant is completely cashless. You just *beep* here and *beep* there and you get to try a variety of delicious dishes from up to five different chefs.


What is Pocket Change?

A lot like it sounds like, you just throw in whatever change you have in your pocket, regardless of the currency, and you can exchange it for electronic money or a voucher of your liking.

Picture this, on your way to Tokyo, you had a layover in Hong Kong and you still have some leftover money from the meal you bought at the airport. You don't really know what to do with it, but landing in Tokyo, it's just enough to buy a train ticket or an onigiri at the convenience store. How practical!

How does it work?


It's Easy

Well, just throw whatever money you have in the Pocket Change machine arriving at the airport, in downtown Tokyo and of course at the resto. You can use different currencies and you can exchange it for all sorts of electronic money services. In fact, you can exchange the currencies of ten different countries, from US Dollars to Euros and South Korean Won.

For example, you can charge up the card you got at the station to take the train. You can charge it with money you have left in your pocket and this is how you can pay for your meal at re:Dine.
A lot of restaurants in Tokyo do not accept credit cards so this simplifies the process quite a bit.
But at re:Dine they do accept credit cards, in addition to many types of electronic cards!
Pretty easy, right!

Many types of electronic money or vouchers

What kind of electronic cards can you charge you might ask?

You can charge many different types of cards, such as public transport e-money (Suica, Pasmo, etc.), Rakuten, which is a prepaid cash card, Apple or iTunes gift cards, Amazon gift certificates, or cards you can spend on shopping, such as the WAON or nanaco card.

This can make your travels much smoother as you can use it for the train and even to buy some tunes to make your way to dinner. And of course, to pay for dinner.

Quick & Safe

Also, it's quick and safe since you don't need to enter any personal information.

The minimum amount you can charge is ¥1! So it really can be anything you have left in your pocket or up to ¥30,000 (depending on the type of card). Why not give it a try when you come across one of these machines!
