Today's Note: Numbers in Japanese langauge

When we write 2000 yen in Japanese, we used 2 as a number and sen kanji symbol to represent 1000.
Also, yen symbol to represent yen in japanese.
So, if we write 3000, we use the number 3 instead of the number 2.

ni (2)
sen (thousands)

However, when we write 1000 in Japanese, we just use sen and yen kanji symbols.
Sen yen is 1000 yen in Japanese.
