I know it's probably a stupid question, but I'm curious. 1 Million yen is aproximatly $9312.00. Is 1 million yen still considered a lot in Japan..? Enough to live off of for a while.

Edit:

Apparently the initial point of the thread was misinterpreted. I know the currency translation. The purpose of this thread was more to the point of comparing the cost of living. In The US, the equivalent of 1 million yen is $9312. This isn't really enough to live off of for more than maybe three months if you are frugal. I've read many different articles and resources that state that 1m yen is a whole lot of money.. I've read others that state that 1 m yen wont last you long.

Therefore.. I was wondering what opinions people have about the cost of living in japan VS in their own countries.

This also stems from the fact that when watching jdorama's, 1m yen always seems to be a huge amount, but in reality, it doesn't seem to be....


1 million yen= (as of feb 10, 2008)

US $: 9311.97
Brittish pound: 4786.61
Australian Dollar: 10,400.63
Korean won: 8,776,592.00
Chinese Yuan: 67,015.80

i suggest changing the title of this thread into THOUGHTS ON MONEY CONVERSIONS, rather than just asking how much is 1 million yen, so i do kinda see a point to this thread in my opinion

and lately people have been ganging up on thread starters lately lol, im just saying what im observing

but anyways back on topic, i think that money is weird that way, thats why i usually only stay in one country lol

Edit: adding a quote from a user

-maybe u should bold this part of your first post, or take out some of the information on the first post, so others would understand the purpose of this thread
-and you could request a mod to change the title via private message for you if ya want instead of locking it, but if it were me i would be too lazy lol

I think the point of this thread is if $10,000 would go far in Japan. It's not a simple matter of currency conversion.

For example, the Canadian Dollar and the US Dollar are pretty much at par right now. However, the costs of living in Canada is much more expensive than living in the United States. Food is more expensive, gas is more expensive, but electricity is ridicoulously cheap in Canada compared to the States. Average prices for a 2-bedroom condo in the city I live in runs at about $300,000.00 [yes, I live in an expensive city], which pretty much buys you a mansion elsewhere in the country, or even most of the US.

As for Japan, sorry, I know nothing about Japan.
