I've been trying to sign up for Kakuyasu SIMs and it seems that a lot of places won't accept foreign credit cards.
Not long arrived in Japan; I have a 5-year Zairyu Card and an account with Shinsei.
Recently applied for a Rakuten Credit Card which was rejected, so then tried applying for an Amazon Mastercard, which seems to go through SMBC, but their sign-up form doesn't seem to offer Shinsei as a compatible bank to take payment from.
Not sure what to do now. Any other credit cards that I could try and have a chance of being accepted for? Should I try opening a bank account with a different bank?
