Japan Tobacco begins nationwide e-cigarette rollout next year

Japan Tobacco will expand sales of e-cigarettes to stores throughout the country starting in 2017 as their popularity soars in a market where smoking is in decline.

The former state monopoly's e-cigarettes are already available online and in the southern city of Fukuoka. Expanded sales will begin at stores in Tokyo and other large urban areas, spreading elsewhere gradually. The company will also consider overseas sales.
