That's a LOT of zeros!

I have added an intrusive and ugly currency converter to the bottom of the page.

I am often asked - "Is Japan really that expensive" to which I always say "No, of course not" which is completely untrue. It CAN be massively more expensive, but you are getting paid better, and if you know where to look, you can certainly find bargains. I will hopefully be doing a more in depth post about prices in and around Kobe - Everything from the daily, to the extravagant, to the completely mundane. The converter may be helpful as exchange rates fluctuate and in the off chance that you are reading this after the Yen / Dollar / Euro / Pound has bottomed out and is being used as toilet paper, you can see what was and what is without busting out the Wall Street Journal, or FT and crunching some serious numbers.
