What is the best scenario.. To bring CDN$ (cash) with me and exchange it at a bank in Japan, or exchange a quantity of CDN$ while still in Canada?

In Canada I am getting a Yen selling rate of approx. 77.46 to 79.69. Can anyone give me an indication of the $CDN buy rate in Japan?

If I were to exchange my currency in Canada... I heard that the Bank of Tokyo in Vancouver can offer also JPY currency travellers' cheques...

Any reflections on this?

(I already know NOT to change my money at the airports) Wink

I don't think it will make a HUGE difference where you change it. Yhe exchange rates are pretty similar. Just for convenience sake, I wold change it in Canada. Just one less thing to worry about when you get over here.
