    We are flying out of the USA on Monday May 27.  How should we break our money down on a daily basis to make it easy for train, bus, food etc.   Example:  $100 usd should be in what form of yen to get around….what are buses, trains and eatting places taking?  Hope this makes sense.  We are looking forward to our trip.

    You may just want to start with 10,000 yen bills as you can buy even small items with large bills here (ie you can buy a $2 item with a $100 bill without much of an issue).

    But just in case, get some 5,000 yen bills as well.

    Train tickets in Tokyo range from 160 yen to 1,000+ yen

    As you use the bills you will naturally get change.
