Ever wondered how to convert Real to Yen? Or the Euro to Yen? Or maybe the Dollar to Yen? No matter the currency of your country, in this article we are going to talk a little about the yen conversion, its exchange and value.

Some people are in doubt, where is better to exchange the yen? In the country itself? In Japan? Others ask, is it worth using a bureau de change or is it better to use other online means?

Online Yen Converter

Let's start talking about values! Ever wondered how much a Yen costs? THE Japanese currency is not fractional, so I personally like to say that 100 yen equals 1 dollar despite the differences.

100 yen is roughly equivalent to a dollar not only in direct conversion but in purchasing power. 100 yen is literally a currency, not like 100 dollars. That's because as I mentioned, there is no penny in Japanese!

With 100 yen or 1 dollar you can buy a drink in the vending machine. For 300 yen you can buy a small snack in some establishments.

Now how much is the yen worth in your native currency? You can use the converter below to convert any currency to yen and any amount:

Real to yen - how much and where to exchange?

Exchanging Money for Yen at ATMs

The simplest and easiest way to change your currency into yen is using international credit and debit cards using ATM machines found in places like Seven Eleven.

At least in my country (Brazil), using exchange offices can end up being much more expensive than withdrawing directly with a card. Conversion rates are fixed and you only pay your bank transaction tax.

Another advantage of using your cards and ATM instead of exchange offices is the ease, versatility of simply going to a convenience store without facing lines and registers as if you were withdrawing money in your own country.

Another big advantage is that Japan's ATM machines are available in several languages, so even if you don't know Japanese, you'll be able to make your withdrawals without a problem.

Is it worth converting yen in your country?

Many people believe that the easiest way is to buy yen in their home country. At least in Brazil, the country from which I write this article, conversion rates and taxes have no advantages.

Currency exchanges usually charge a higher conversion fee, in addition to country taxes and transaction fees. I recommend using this method only if your country has low rates or you need to arrive in Japan with some cash on hand.

It is worth remembering that there is also a certain limit of cash you can have when leaving and entering a country through customs. Check the limits in your country before traveling with cash in hand.
