A guide to using Japanese yen
Japan is a country that blends the ultra-modern with the ancient. Some areas you visit, including cities and big towns, will readily accept credit or debit cards. In the rural areas, you’ll need to have some cash.
If you’re looking to save money, there are plenty of budget options when it comes to travel, activities and food in Japan. A fantastic budget holiday can be had for around £50 – ¥7,000, per day – for a more luxurious experience you’ll want to set aside at least £100 per day. To work out how much money you’ll need, use the TUI budget calculator.
Tipping in Japan is not customary, but many hotels and restaurants will automatically add a 10% service charge to the bill.
