    What affects USD > JPY exchange rates?

    The policies of the Federal Reserve

    When the Fed stops distributing dollars (as just one example), it restricts the money supply. Hence, demand goes up.

    Exports from Japan and China

    Both countries buy dollars to stabilize their currencies. This helps them create cheaper exports, which in turn makes their exports more attractive to world buyers.

    Japan’s GDP

    When it’s growing, the yen goes up. When it slows, the yen tends to drop.

    Industrial production

    Japan’s economy is heavily affected by the success of its manufacturing industry.

    Trade surpluses

    Because Japan is a small country, it needs to export many goods to run a strong economy. Trade surpluses tend to increase the value of the yen.

      I will be traveling to JAPAN, and would like to take the Yen with me. Do these transfer businesses send the yen to a private home?

        Hi Fred,

        Thanks for reaching out to finder.

        The money transfer companies listed on this page will only allow you to send money online internationally, direct to your receiver’s bank account or for cash pick-up.

        Alternatively, you can go to our guide page in buying foreign currency for helpful information if you need to buy currency in the form of cash. There is one money transfer company featured on that page which you may want to also check out.

        I hope this helps.
