Best Japanese yen exchange rate

If you're travelling to Japan, it's important to shop around and compare currency suppliers to maximise your chances of getting a good deal. We can help you to find the best Japanese yen exchange rate by comparing a wide range of UK travel money suppliers who have Japanese yen in stock and ready to order online now. Our comparisons automatically factor in all costs and commission, so all you need to do is tell us how much you want to spend and we'll show you the top suppliers who fit the bill.

Compare before you buy

Some of the best travel money deals are only available when you buy online. By using a comparison site, you're more likely to see the full range of deals on offer and get the best rate.

Order online

Always place your order online, even if you plan to collect your currency in person. Most supermarkets and high street currency suppliers offer better exchange rates if you order online beforehand.

Combine orders

If you're travelling with others, consider placing one large currency order instead of buying individually. Many currency suppliers offer enhanced rates that improve as you order more.

Japanese yen banknotes and coins

One Japanese yen (¥) can theoretically be subdivided into 100 sen or 1000 rin, although these denominations are no longer in circulation due to their low values and the smallest unit of currency you're likely to come across is the ¥1 coin.

There are three denominations of Japanese yen banknotes in frequent circulation: ¥1000, ¥5000 and ¥10000; and six coin denominations: ¥1, ¥5, ¥10, ¥50, ¥100 and ¥500.

Under Japanese law, merchants can refuse to accept coin payments where 21 or more coins are of the same denomination. This law was enacted out of consideration for the inconvenience caused to merchants by having to count all of the coins!
