I am using a European Google Pay-compatible cellphone and the corresponding region account linked to it and will likely be traveling to Japan.
I would like to use contact-less-based public transport, for which I would like to create a Suica card on Google Pay, but I'm having trouble reading the help page from Google :
It reads :
Important: This article is for Google Pay customers in Japan.
Does this mean that you only need to be physically in Japan or do you need a Japanese Google account to add a Suica card?
The other page specifically about the suica card, says
To add an e-money card, your device must be Osaifu-Keitai compatible
I wasn't able to find any resource in English about the compatibility of specific devices, would there be one in Japanese?
Most credit cards issued in Japan are supported for topping up.
breaks the plan as I won't have a Japanese card, but still interested about the answers
