This informational video about My Number System in Japan will give you some insights on what it is and how it affects the residents of Japan. For your information, an excerpt from The Japan Times has been included below -
“Despite being trumpeted as ushering in a more efficient, egalitarian society, the controversial My Number system that starts with identification numbers being sent out to residents of Japan this week is raising serious concerns about invasions of privacy and the security of personal information.
These are not the only concerns, however. Others decry the heavy burden the project will put on businesses that will be tasked with collecting the identification numbers of employees and part-time workers — not to mention their family dependents.
Add to this the ruckus over how exactly a tax rebate proposal under the system will work, fears about photo-ID cards being lost, and question marks over whether municipalities are capable of handling the expected number of applications. …all residents of the country, Japanese and foreign, will begin receiving by mail randomly generated 12-digit numbers that ideally will not change throughout their lifetimes.
The government is aiming for residents to receive a provisional paper ID card by the middle of this month, before the system comes into full effect in January. The provisional cards can be exchanged for a photo-ID My Number with an embedded data chip, which the government highly recommends.”
