Almost all department stores in Japan advertise this for travelers, as it is part of their standardized signage, so you will see it even in rural or remote branches (not just near the airport or In. Tokyo.  While I wouldn’t expect this service at small shops, it is a common sight to see “tax free” or “duty free” here in Japan. Here is the official signage seen in many places:

Yes - This is metadata about the shop. 

However, in airports, there are pointedly “duty free” shops for (all) travelers. that have no ability to collect taxes for any purchase, so shop=gifts + duty_free=designated might be a good way to do it for these specialty shops in international zones, Compared to shop=supermarket + duty_free=yes that would be at a normal market that offers that service for foreign travelers who happen to shop there.
