This page is made as a notice and guidelines.
Please do not edit.
For the sake of consistency, all conversions from JPY to USD in this wiki are, and (until otherwise noted) must be the price in JPY divided by 75.
Due to the exchange rate changing, this will not always be accurate, and may reflect a lower price than the current cost of all items.
Please check the conversion on a site that updates automatically, such as Paypal.com or Yahoo! Finance before making any serious moves like buying or selling the items.
As all items with a value in JPY are obtained from Japan, their cost will be much higher than what's listed on this wiki. The retail values listed here are only the raw costs of purchasing the items offline while living in Japan.
Every single item, when purchased online, is subject to shipping fees, bank fees, and depending on the method of obtaining them, sometimes deputy service commission fees.
A safe bet when judging the price of an item is to add 800円 ($10.67) to the retail value before comparing it. This reflects the international shipping cost of most small, light items.
