At Japan Expo, many games and activities can make you win Jens, the festival currency, which you can then exchange for products at the Jen shop. Let’s explain how it all works!
New Jen notes!
In 2017, a new version of Jen notes will be used at Japan Expo festivals, replacing the old ones. The Jens you won in 2016 and before will still be valid in 2017 until the end of the year but not in 2018 and after.
Don’t forget to exchange the Jens you still own against products at the Jen store at Japan Expo Sud 8th Wave (Feb. 24-26, 2017) or at Japan Expo 18th Impact (July 6-9, 2017) to avoid losing them!
What are Jens?
Jens are a fictive currency used only Japan Expo Sud and other Japan Expo festivals. It is made of notes of 100 Jens, 500 Jens, 1,000 Jens, 2,000 Jens, and 5,000 Jens.
You can collect the Jen notes you win in several Japan Expo festivals and year after year. Thus you can win Jens in several festivals, and then use them in one exchange.
Attention! As mentioned in the previous section, a new version of Jen tickets will be used from 2017. The Jens you collected until 2016 are still valid for a year: don’t forget to exchange them at Japan Expo Sud 8th Wave (Feb. 24-26, 2017) or at Japan Expo 18th Impact (July 6-9, 2017).
