8 best places to exchange money in Tokyo 2019 version

 

 March 14th, 2019 revised and updated

Japanese Yen (JPY) is used currency in Japan.
There are bills of 1,000, 2,000, 5,000 and 10,000 yen.
Although 2,000 yen bills can be used anywhere, they hardly circulation. So you will rarely receive them.
And there are coins of 1, 5, 10, 50, 100 and 500 yen.

It is very easy to currency exchange in Tokyo.

There are a lot of exchange place at airports, stations and hotels, If you don’t care about exchange rate.

Also, you will be able to use credit card or debit card because there are some ATMs and banks almost everywhere in Tokyo.
(There is a possibility that it could not be used in certain ATMs.)

But it is very hard to currency exchange at good exchange rate.

I think many of foreign tourists who have been to Japan were surprised about exchange rate.
Previously, in Japan, only banks were conducting currency exchange services.
As a result, there is little competition, the exchange rate is side by side, it was not like a good exchange rate for travelers.

Following the trend of deregulation, the “Foreign Exchange Law” was revised, allowing non-bank companies to exchange foreign currencies.

Compared with other major cities in other countries, there are not many exchange traders in Tokyo, but many companies such as Travelex are entering currency exchange business.

We also helped create an environment where competition is born, the options for foreign currency exchange services have increased, and the exchange rate has been improving.

As of 2019, if you want to exchange money at the best rate, you may want to go to one of the hubs that change the most reputable money in Tokyo.

It is around Tokyo station , Akihabara, Ginza, Roppongi, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Shinbashi and Ueno.

The above hub is also known as a sightseeing spot in Tokyo and it is easily accessible by public transport.
Even if you are a foreign traveler, it is not difficult to exchange money.
If you are exchanging a large amount of money, you may want to negotiate to get a better exchange rate.

Lastly
What is convenient currency exchange?

What is convenient foreign currency exchange?
Worried about the exchange rate, where is the best place to exchange money?
I understand the feeling I think.

However, is it really possible to exchange currency at a currency exchange shop with a good currency exchange rate?

“I tried exchanging foreign currencies at a good rate using train fare and time, but the story of exchanging money at banks better as a result of thinking well …” is a story that is often heard in the case of a small amount of money exchange.
It is good to think about the amount you want to exchange and the exchange rate and decide where to exchange.

Personally, we recommend exchanging a small amount of currency at a bank’s foreign currency exchange service or a currency exchange store at a nearby roadside shop.

Banks and currency exchange stores are in very convenient places.
Even though those exchange rates are somewhat worse, if you think that you are buying time and convenience, it would be a satisfactory exchange for a small amount of money.
