We're now into a new month and it is time to take a peek at how the U.S. dollar is faring against the Japanese yen in Tokyo trading.
This time, the picture is somewhat brighter as foreign tourists are being allowed again in Japan starting in June 10.

According Jiji Press:
Tokyo, May 31 (Jiji Press)--The dollar hit a two-week high above 128.30 yen before losing ground in Tokyo trading Tuesday.
At 5 p.m., the dollar stood at 127.75-75 yen, up from 127.36-36 yen at the same time Monday.
