Exchange Rate in Japan
The Japanese yen fluctuated against the US dollar from 2013 to 2022. Early in the decade, the yen weakened significantly due to Japan's aggressive monetary easing policies aimed at combating deflation. However, the yen saw periods of strengthening, particularly during times of global economic uncertainty, reflecting its status as a safe-haven currency. The yen weakened substantially in 2022, reflecting rate hikes by the Fed.
The exchange rate ended 2022 at JPY 132 per USD, compared to the end-2021 value of JPY 115 per USD and the figure a decade earlier of JPY 105 per USD. For more exchange rate information, visit our dedicated page.
