Why So Complicated Guys…?

Hey! It’s Daichi! Thanks for reading and like always!

The other day, I met husband and wife from Chicago in cafe. They were trouble with something when I sat next to them. What do you think what they were trouble with?

That was Japanese money “yen (円)“.


I have experienced I was trouble with dollar in other country because I did not know price of coin. I often had a lot of coin. At the time, kind people helped me. Therefore, I thought “it is my turn to move!”, I talked to them, “May I help you?” This 4 words always make me have courage because I am shy and not good at speaking English. But, they smiled and they explained their current situation. Thanks to that, I was able to helped them.

I thought the reason why I was able to helped them was I knew how much the coins and bills. So, if you know that before come to Japan, you are not troubled with them. Therefore, I am going to tell you how much this “yen” is.
