About the AUD to JPY exchange rate

It's the best rate to convert foreign currency but often, it's very hard to actually get.
Where is the best place to exchange AUD to JPY?
It's simple to buy yen with AUD but it may not necessarily be as fast as walking into a money changer. Services like Australia Post also offer a foreign exchange service online but it takes between two and five business days before the currency is ready for pick-up or delivery so you need to be organised!
Alternatively, buying your currency in Japan in-store can be a good option but it all depends on where you go. The money changers in the centre of the main cities like Tokyo or Osaka tend to be more competitive than smaller stores in the suburbs.
Only change money at the airport as a last resort. The exchange rates and fees at Australian airports are among the worst in the world so avoid it at all costs if you want to get the best bang for your buck.

What is the best time to exchange AUD to JPY?
As a rule of thumb, if you are buying yen in Australia, you want the AUD/JPY exchange rate to be as high as possible. The higher the rate, the better it is for you. It means that you will receive more yen for the same amount of Australian dollars.
Unfortunately there isn't a particular day of the week or time of the day that is the best time.
