Discover has an agreement with JCB to honour Discover cards on their network for over a million Japanese retailers and ATMs. They also have a similar agreement with China UnionPay for ATMs and electronic payment merchants in China. Diners Club cards also accepted through the Discover network in over 185 countries.
Additional plus for Discover...their website! Puts most others to shame for ease of navigation and precise information at your fingertips.
Over the last year or so I've started to see the Discover and Diners Club logo a lot more here in the UK as well. I'd say the majority of small businesses seem to have the decal up. Discover must be really ramping up their international acceptance (Which has now surpassed American Express numbers wise).
