18 months ago it was something like $1USD = 123 Japanese yen. That's a 27% drop in the value of the US dollar compared to the Japanese yen.

To reiterate what I said a few months ago, in the long haul, the Japanese yen, the Euro, and the Swiss franc.
Francs for the long haul. Euros for the mid term haul. Yennies for the 12 month haul.

When I lived in Japan the exchange rate was 1USD = 320 yen.
