Automated currency exchange machines built with the latest technology were installed on February 1 inside Haneda Airport International Terminal Station, a stop on the Tokyo Monorail next to Haneda International Airport's passenger terminal building in Ohta Ward, Tokyo.

The machines are part of the new services for an expected increase in international travelers by Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo-based JTB Business Innovators Corp., a branch of the JTB Group involved in businesses including finance and payment settlements. The two currency exchange machines are RG7 Currency Exchangers, the latest model built by Minato Ward, Tokyo-based Oki Electric Industry Co., Ltd. The RG7 is the first such machine in the world capable of handling exchanges in multiple currencies and in both directions. Along with exchanging Japanese yen for U.S. dollars or euros, or U.S. dollars or euros for Japanese yen, the machines allow users to specify the amount of money or bills they want, rather than the conventional packages bundling bills of a certain type.

The machines are outside the station's ticket gates to the platform for trains, accessible via the third-floor departures lobby. They can exchange Japanese yen for U.S. dollars in denominations of 10 or 50 dollars and for euros in denominations of 100 euros, while exchanges to Japanese yen accept 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5-dollar U.S. bills and 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5-euro bills.
