The yen is the official currency of Japan, the word yen comes from the Japanese for “round object” or “circle” and it is pronounced as “en” in Japan. Also it is the 3rd-most-traded currency in the foreign exchange market.
Although known for its technology-driven culture, Japan is still quite a cash-based society. So it’s a good idea to bring some Japanese currency with you before visiting Tokyo, Kyoto and other popular tourist destinations there.
