Weak Yen= Good Exchange Rates & Good Time to Visit Japan!
Japan is currently experiencing the weakest yen in almost 25 years. The yen has dropped from around 110 yen to the (US) dollar, which had been stable for the past several years, but now you can buy something that costs $10 for about $7 or $8, which is very appealing to shoppers from abroad. It is nice to see that shopping in Japan, which was originally undervalued, is now discounted by more than 20%.
