> The Payment Request API has been updated with granular errors, support for default addresses and contacts configured in Wallet and Apple Pay settings, and special field support for Japan.

What is "special field support for Japan"? I cannot find any reference to this in the specification or on Google.

It allows merchants to require a phonetic spelling of the recipient's name be returned as part of the shipping address. This is a feature specific to the Apple Pay payment method, and is implemented through Payment Request's various payment method extension points (e.g., PaymentMethodData.data, PaymentResponse.details).
