INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Euroyen'

An example of Euroyen would be yen deposits held in U.S. banks, or banks in Asia. Like all eurocurrencies, Euroyen deposits fall outside the regulatory purview of the central bank that issued the currency, the Bank of Japan in this case. Therefore, Euroyen deposits may offer slightly higher interest rates than those available for yen deposits in Japan.
