    Money Exchange

    I want to exchange 135,000 yen cash to hkd. Where is the best place to do this? Is there an age requirement for currency exchange(14+)? Would I have to bring identification.

    You need to have an id, usually HKID card or passport if you are not a child and in a public place in HK. Yes you maybe asked to show your id changing 135,000 yen. Check the exchange rates of the many exchange shops in Chungking Mansion if you goto TST. They open every day.

    You can also put it in your bank account (JPY multi currency account) and save it for your next trip to Japan. Since JPY is cheap now not a bad idea to hold onto it.
