Your Japanese journey awaits

With its ancient culture and hospitable people, a journey to Japan is truly a magical experience. There are historic temples to be discovered, buzzing markets to trawl, fresh sushi to devour, and mountains to climb. However you’re planning to spend your time in Japan, you’re going to need some Japanese yen before you go.

Want to see the magnificent Himeji-jō castle, skiing in Hokkaidō or climbing to the peak of famous Mount Fuji? Known for its amazing contrasts, Japan offers an exciting experience for everyone. More than just cherry blossoms, this beautiful country has a colourful nightlife and shopping, breathtaking castles and shrines, architecture that will make you look twice, and some of the best local fare you’ll ever eat. To truly make the most of Japan, you’re going to need to swap your Kiwi dollars for the Japanese yen.

Coins and notes

The Japanese yen (¥) is available in unholed coins ¥1, ¥10, ¥100, and ¥500, and holed coins ¥5 and ¥50. Banknotes include ¥1000, ¥2000, ¥5000 and ¥10,000 variations.

Facts about the currency

  • The name ‘yen’ comes from the Japanese translation of ‘a round object’.
  • Between December 1941 and April 1949, the yen didn’t have a true exchange rate, as wartime inflation had reduced the yen to a fraction of its value before the war. The US occupation government fixed the value of the yen at ¥360 per US$1 in 1949 in an attempt to stabilise prices in the Japanese economy. This rate was abandoned in 1971.
  • While most nations display the Gregorian calendar year of mintage on their coins, yen coins display the year of the current emperor's reign.
