gotta yen for yen?

Jump to last reply

i know there are a few travelers here that will be going to japan in the fall, so this might be of interest to you.

this morning, i went to my favorite money changer in waikik, and got a yen rate of 98.5 to the usd. i also called two banks, and was quoted 92 and 96 yen to the usd. boo!

my crystal balling friend advised me that he predicts the yen will be between 100-105 to the usd within the next two months. of course, he also took the four points and went with michigan.

i think it might be over a 100 yen to the usd in japan now.
