Travel to Japan
Something you always have to keep in mind is that you know what applies, what you have to do and how to behave before you go to a foreign country. Unfortunately, there are too many people who have no idea about it. This then leads to two things.

Here you get some information that may be good to know.
The currency in Japan is the Yen
According to usaers, the currency used in Japan is called the Yen. It is the domestic currency, which means that you who go to Japan should always switch to this currency. You can do this at home, or you can change when you arrive. The exchange rate can of course differ a little, but is usually not drastically large in difference.
Now it is also the case that the Japanese like American dollars. Make sure you know the value against their own currency, as otherwise you may have to pay a much higher price than you would have done in Yen. When you go to Japan, however, it is good to have both Yen and USD in your travel fund, as you can benefit from one or the other in different situations.
