In Japan, many public pay phones can be operated either with coins, or via a system known as telephone cards (テレホンカード). Customers would buy these pre-paid cards containing a specified amount of minutes. Over the years, many have been sponsored by Sega.

As with much of the world, public pay phones have been in steady decline due to the rise of low cost mobile and smart phones. The system still exists, but is not nearly as popular as it once was.
