Preparing for Japan Travel: Where to Buy Japanese Yen in Manila


[2019 UPDATE]

Hello everyone! I'm here in Osaka now. I still can't believe I'm actually writing this on a couch, in Starbucks next to Umeda Arts Theater while staring at the most fashionable Japanese winter OOTDs  I've seen so far...

OHEHMGEEE!!! Winter is real!

Anyway, I will blog about everything I will do here to help you plan your own travel to Japan. But first, let me post about where to buy Japanese Yen in Manila as a lot of people have been asking where's the best place. I bought JPY from Sanry's Money Changer at Robinson's Galleria. You can also buy Yen from BPI but you have to make a reservation at least 10 days ahead.


I asked how much I could get if I exchange PHP 20,000.00 to JPY. Here is the comparison:

Sanry's  Money Changer: 50,000.00 JPY for PHP 19, 300.00 - EXCHANGE RATE: 0.3860
NAIA Terminal 3 (PNB): 51,000.00 JPY for PHP 20,100.00 (There is a service Charge of 100 pesos if you exchange there) - EXCHANGE RATE: 0.3832
NAIA Terminal 3 (Money Changer next to PNB): JPY 50, 000.00 for PHP 20, 000.00 - EXCHANGE RATE: 0.3624

I think it's BEST to buy Japanese Yen at Sanry's Money Changer in Robinson's Galleria.
