The Cash Car will be introduced in rural areas of Japan, areas where it's difficult to place a stationary ATM.

The cars will travel around thinly populated areas, as well as event venues.

The bank, Mitsubishi UFJ, plans to test the ATM Car next year.

The bank will also create an app that people can use to call the ATM car when they need cash.

They say we're entering an era when, instead of going to the bank, the bank will come to us.
