I live in the Shimosuwa area and am seeking a bank which will permit me to exchange Korean Won for Japanese Yen.

I am willing to travel as far as Matsumoto City and am not far from Okaya, Chinho, and Kami-Suwa stations. Can you help me?

Any bank will do it. Just go in and ask them. Many second or third tier banks might have to send it to a regional office, which will add a few days, but they all change money.

At lot of the smaller branches, especially out in the boonies, may not do it. If you're in or near a decent sized city you should do fine just walking into a good sized bank of any type.

I`ve tried at 82 Bank in Shimosuwa City and Chinho City and have had no luck. I`ve also tried at Japan Post bank near Chinho Station and had no luck.

I`m nearly out of Yen and need to get to Matsumoto City in the morning. Are there, 100 percent certain, banks in Matsumoto City which will allow me to exchange won for Yen?

Banks are local here so I have no idea what's in Matsumoto. Sorry.

I dunno if the JP bank will do it, but it may not hurt to try. Otherwise, walk into the biggest bank you find and give it a shot.

One last call:

Does anybody know, with absolute certainty, if a bank in Matsumoto City, KamiSuwa, Okaya, Shimosuwa, Chinho, or Shiojiri will permit me to exchange Korean Won for Japanese Yen?
