$24.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

In Japan, Article 17 of the Consumer Basic Act sets out the state's role in consumer education. It includes promoting activities, such as dissemination of knowledge and provision of information concerning consumption, raising consumer awareness and helping people to be independent and responsible consumers. This is to be achieved by providing education at the school, community, family and workplace levels, among others. The Cabinet Office takes the major responsibility for carrying out the policies. Local governments also play a role; they are responsible for tailoring basic measures to fit regional social and economic situations.
