What type of money is used in japan

What money is used in japan - Over the next few centuries, the inflow of chinese coins did not meet the demand, so to counter this issue, two privately minted japanese coins, the toraisen and shichusen, entered circulation from the 14th to 16th century. Tours administered by hato bus, popular with japanese tourists and foreign visitors alike, can be joined for 10,000 yen per person and have support for multiple languages. Unlike many coins worldwide, japanese coins are stamped with the year of the current emperor's reign rather than a year based on the gregorian calendar. In order to simplify and centralize the different coins being used at the time, the yen (which means 'circle' or 'round object') was created in 1871.
