Foreign currency exchange facilities

Foreign currency exchange facilities

The Japanese yen is the currency used in Okinawa, although US dollars are accepted at some shops in Chatan and Okinawa City, where the major U.S. bases are located. Credit cards can be used at some shops frequented by tourists; however, local stores accept only yen. You are strongly recommended to exchange money before heading to northern Okinawa. Cash can be withdrawn at post office ATMs with a Citibank card.
