I am always confused with this ‘oku yen’. How much is ichi oku and how is this related to million? Is there any better way to remember this number?

Japanese people use multiples of ten thousand to write larger numbers. Ten thousand (10,000) is called ‘man’. Ichiman is 10,000.

(I purposely place the comma after 10)

Juman is 10,0000 (a hundred thousand)

hyakuman is 10,00,000 (1 million)

senman is 1000,0000 (10 million)

next number is the ‘oku’, that is manman – 10,000,0000
