Yen is a lower denomination currency. 1 Yen is equal to about 70 paise. So its unit number to dollar as compared to rupee will always be higher. Globally Rupee is not the only currency sliding. Value of Currency of most of the emerging markets as compared to USD are sliding. In case of INR the slide is slightly more mainly because of our political conditions where government is not able to launch any of its economic policies because of intimidation by opposition and activism by the media. The increase in value of dollar could be due to recovery of US economy. The funds that US investors had parked in other countries when US economy was down after 2008 sub prime crises are probably being withdrawn and getting invested in US itself. This could be the probable reason for the value of most currency falling down in regards to dollar.

The Japanese currency is the Yen, literally meaning "circle". One yen corresponds to 100 sen. However, sen are not used in everyday life anymore.

Coins come in 1 Yen, 5 Yen, 10 Yen, 50 Yen, 100 Yen and 500 Yen.

Bills come in 1,000 Yen, 2,000 Yen (very rare), 5,000 Yen and 10,000 Yen.
