Amazing Japanese Yen
1. Beautiful money
When you exchange the money from the currency of your country to Japanese Yen, you would be surprised that the paper money is very beautiful., straight, no fold and clean.
2. 1-Yen coin
It is requires a cost of more than 1-Yen to manufacture 1-yen coin. Threfore, in recent, 1-Yen coin has not been. It might be a good idea that you bring back 1-Yen coin to your country.
3. 10-Yen coin
10-Yen coin is present in two types, normal type or jagged 10 yen.
In Japanese, the indentation means “Giza-Giza” and 10 (ten) means “jyu”. For this reason, we call that “Giza-jyu”. “Giza-jyu” was manufactured prior to 19xx. If you get “Giza-jyu”, you might spend a lucky day.
4. Paper money of 2000-Yen
You will not be able to see the paper money of 2000-Yen because 2000-Yen hardly go on the society. If you see or get that, you are luckier than you get “Giza-jyu”.
We would like you to feel the Japanese culture from not only the food and scenery but also the currency such as coin and paper money.
