It’s a points-earning, rate-locking, interest-free card!

When you load via the Qantas Money mobile app or website, you can lock in the exchange rate3 on up to 10 foreign currencies4 - including Japanese Yen (JPY). Buying JPY before you head off will give you peace of mind that even if the rates move up or down while you’re away, your pre-loaded currencies won’t. Meaning you’ll always know exactly how much money you have available to spend for better budgeting abroad.

Check out today's rate below. The handy currency converter tool will tell you how much AU$1 will buy if you load JPY within the next four hours.3

Whether you plan to meander or high-speed your way through Japan, one thing’s for sure, you’ll need to buy some Japanese Yen or some JPY. Japan is a place like no other. Cutting edge modern technology, high-speed trains and fashions of the future are mixed in with ancient gods, craftsmanship and stringent customs. You could be overloading your senses in Tokyo one moment, then hiking through fields of wildflowers or skiing the next (depending on the season). Whatever you decide to do, you’ll definitely need to convert some AUD to JPY.

Load it up and lock it in

The great thing about travelling with a Qantas Pay card is that you can lock in the exchange rate of your desired currency prior to traveling3 - up to 10 exchange rates at one time4. Meaning you’ll always know exactly how much money you have, even when visiting more than one destination. Even better, you’ll earn Qantas Points on the foreign currency you spend. All you need to do is load your money onto your Qantas Pay card, via the Qantas Money mobile app or website. You can choose from instant load, bank transfer, or BPAY®, whichever suits you.

When you’re going from AUD to JPY, it’s good to know how the currency is valued. There are four banknotes and six coins in use.

Japan's top destinations

When you arrive in Japan it is, at first glance, a place led by modern technology. Cutting-edge, innovative approaches to life, such as capsule hotels and high-speed trains. However, once you start to scratch the surface, you realise the foundations of tradition and custom are the backbone.

Tokyo Street


There’s so much to see here, you could spend weeks just wandering around. The contemporary architecture is ambitious which makes it fascinating. Then there are the cutting-edge fashion shops and internationally celebrated bars and restaurants. Plus, you have the traditional beauty found in temples, shrines and imperial gardens. And then, if all that wasn’t enough, there’s always Tokyo Disneyland to visit.



It’s a city with a tragic and very famous history, but thankfully it’s rebuilt itself and today thrives. Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park is a constant reminder of 6 August 1945, but rather than dwell on the atrocities, they have managed to transform the city into a city of peace. A thriving cosmopolitan community make this a wonderful and vibrant place to visit.
