This article is for those who want to get Myna points but are uncertain about the application procedure because you do not understand Japanese.
Myna Points is a point redemption measure for My Number card(Japan’s Individual card) holders implemented by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan.

What you need to get Myna points

There are three things you need to get Myna points.

  • My number card(Japan’s Individual card)
  • Myna point app

Also, after June 2022, a campaign will start where you can get 7500 yen if you register your My Number Card as a health insurance card, and 7500 yen if you link your My Number Card to your bank account.
It’s a little early, but as a bonus, I will explain the two registration procedures.

Heya i am for the primary time here. I came across this board and I in finding It truly helpful & it helped me out a lot. I am hoping to give something again and aid others such as you helped me.


Thank you for all your help.
I have an issue, I can not install any myna apps (myna points and myna portal) my guess is because my phone doesn’t have NFC!
(as I have access to any other Japanese apps, like Mercary jp)
So you provide an alternative with 7/11ATM for Myna points (I will try soon)
But for Myna portal, there is no alternative, does it mean it’s impossible to link mynumber to my health insurance?
Thank you


Once you registered the bank account when can i get the points? Or cash in my bank account?


Hi yoji san thank you for the useful information. But if you know i already register for the 7500 yen and it was credited to my paypay but immediately was charge -7500 by paypay for point operation. Do you know why this happen?thank in advance


I searched on the Internet in Japanese, but unfortunately there seems to be no same case. Could you tell me a little more detail?

Hi Yoji san, thank you so much for this blog it is very informative. I tried linking my bank account but it does not accept 7 bank which is the only bank account I have. Can you help me with this?


Thank you for reading my blog. Unfortunately, it seems that Seven Bank accounts cannot be registered as public money receiving accounts. Japan Post Bank seems to be easy for foreigners to pass the examination. How about opening an account at Japan Post Bank?


Do I need to charge money first at the convenient store using my paypay before I can get my 20000¥?


Hi Yoji san, after applying for the 7,500 points I forgot to link my bank account. What should I do now. When I try to link my bank account now my Myna portal kept on showing error screen. I hope you can help me.

Hello! I just want to ask, I cancelled my registration for this and then reapplied it, what should I do? Should I wait of it will be granted or should I get a new My Number card?


Yoji san,
Thanks for sharing this and it is very informative. I tried to submit the application for the first time for 5000 pts. but unfortunately my phone is not scan the my number card. As i have iphone 12.
What should be done? Thanks in advance


When scanning My Number Card with a smartphone, is it done on the desk or near a device that generates magnetism? It is easier to scan if you hold your My Number card and your smartphone in your hand.


Woᴡ that was unusual. I just wrote an reaⅼly long comment but after I clicked submit
my comment didn’t show uр. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all
that oνer aɡain. Regardless, just wanted to say
excellent bloɡ!


Hello Yoji-san, thanks for your helpful blog.
I wanted to register myna card as health insurance but my smartphone isn’t compatible with Myna Portal app. I cannot download the Myna Portal app. Is there another way for me to register without using the app?


Hi Yoji san, thanks for your advise. I have gotten 20,000 points but how can I use it? let me know in details


Thank you for another informative site. The place else could
I get that type of information written in such an ideal manner?
I have a mission that I am just now operating on, and I’ve been at the look out for such info.

Nagwa Khalil

Thank you Yoji san. Some very useful information in such detail. You’re excellent indeed.


Dear Yoji-san,

Thank you for the detailed explanation. I applied for the 20000 points and I was granted 20000 points in paypay. However, paypay did not update by balance after applying these points. is there a wait time before the balance gets updated. It seems to be that paypay has a bug in their system. where do i complain?


Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field. Fantastic blog!


Thank you!informative:)

Thanks for the write-up. My spouse and i have usually noticed that the majority of people are desperate to lose weight since they wish to show up slim plus attractive. However, they do not always realize that there are more benefits so that you can losing weight also. Doctors state that obese people experience a variety of conditions that can be perfectely attributed to the excess weight. Thankfully that people who are overweight in addition to suffering from diverse diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their own illnesses by losing weight. It is easy to see a steady but identifiable improvement with health as soon as even a small amount of weight loss is attained.
