There's good news for U.S. travelers to Japan.
The U.S. dollar has risen against the yen in Tokyo trading.
According to an article posted in The Japan Times:
The dollar rose to levels around ¥121.80 in Tokyo late Thursday, backed by growing hopes for an early U.S. interest rate increase.
At 5 p.m., the dollar stood at ¥121.79-80, up from ¥121.10-10 at the same time Wednesday. The euro was at $1.0836-0836, down from $1.0939-0939, and at ¥131.97-98, down from ¥132.48-49.Although travelers to Japan won't be getting the full ¥121.80 rate (high-rollers get that), the rate they will be getting will be a little higher. I received ¥116 during my recent Japan trip while the dollar was at ¥120.
