The yen's accelerated depreciation has raised public dissatisfaction.

This week, due to the expectations of international investors for the delay in the time for the US to cut interest rates, the yen has once again accelerated its depreciation. The exchange rate of the US dollar against the yen on the 12th has reached a low point not seen in 34 years, with one US dollar exchanging for 153.307 yen!

The continuous depreciation of the yen not only has a profound impact on the lives of the Japanese people, but also has an increasingly greater impact on incoming tourists and foreigners who work and live in Japan! In a barbecue restaurant in Nakano District, Tokyo, a group of guests are enjoying delicious grilled lamb. Facing the reporter's interview, a guest said that the barbecue in this store is very delicious, today is a good day, and feels that he works hard every day just to eat such delicious cuisine.

On the other side of the lens, the owner of the barbecue restaurant reluctantly told the reporter: The lamb used in the store is imported from Australia, and the purchase price has been soaring. In the past year, in order to provide customers with cheap and delicious cuisine, we have been trying hard not to raise prices. I didn't expect that this time the duration of the yen's depreciation would be so long, and I don't know how long I can persist.

The impact of the yen's depreciation is not only on these restaurants that use imported ingredients. In the supermarkets that are indispensable in the daily lives of ordinary Japanese people, many goods have seen a considerable increase in recent years. According to the introduction of a store manager of a supermarket, for example, the purchase price of imported meat has increased by 1.5 to 2 times compared with two years ago.

An elderly guest bitterly smiled and told reporters that he often bought meat produced in foreign countries before, but now the ones produced in foreign countries have become more expensive, and now it's time to buy domestic meat, and the number of times of buying is also less than before.

Probably because the younger people are more straightforward, a young female guest told the reporter: The exchange rate where 1 US dollar is exchanged for 153 yen is simply uncomprehensible, and she feels that the normal exchange rate should be 1 US dollar exchanged for 110 yen or 120 yen.

Probably because of the cherry blossom season, the major airports in Japan are crowded with foreign tourists who come to play in Japan. A pair of tourists from the United States told reporters: I didn't expect the prices in Japan to be so cheap. This time, we originally only planned to go to Tokyo Disneyland, but temporarily changed the plan and went to many other places to play.

The reporter also met a group of Chinese tourists who came to Japan to buy a house at the airport. One of the male guests told the reporter that his child was studying in Japan now and wanted to buy him a house. After learning about the price, he found that the current housing prices in Japan are really Very conscientious.

Compared with Tokyo, Osaka and the first-tier cities in China, the high-end residences in the downtown area of Tokyo are only about 100 million yen, and according to the current exchange rate, it is only 4.72 million RMB.
