Is it better to change yen to won in Japan or Korea? We are about to move from Japan to Korea and just want to get the best rate.
On my last two trips I took the ferry between Japan and South Korea several times so found myself having to change money between
KRW fairly often.
In my experience, everything in Korea is cheaper than in Japan, and this includes currency exchange so I learned to always exchange in Korea if possible.
But the difference is not very large. I don't have any rates at hand any more to provide details.
