Those who are planning to travel to Japan might need to save up a little change before leaving the country as the government officially implemented a departure tax earlier this week.

The new law, which is being dubbed as “Sayonara Tax,” was put into effect on Monday, January 7, according to Yahoo News. Visitors in Japan will now have to pay 1,000 yen ($9) when they leave the country.
