In Japan people don’t sign documents but have personal stamps for documents. They’re called “inkan” (印鑑) and personal ones need to be registered at your local city hall (市役所・役場) and business ones at the Legal Affairs Bureau (法務局). This has made working remote so difficult here. Everything needs to be stamped by all parties to any agreement. Even trivial paperwork often needs a stamp.
