Abstract :This paper compares the money beliefs and behaviors of Japanese (J) college students and Asian American (AA) college students and to identify gender differences in each country by using Money Beliefs and Behaviors Scale instrument. As compared with J, AA student's money attitude is formed by the relationship with other people. AA are very conscious about how their money attitude is seen. While. J have a strong tendency to save money and they feel anxiety if they do not have enough cash. Such an attitude is linked to the attitude that they think money is the only thing they can count on and the attitude they do not want to borrow money. In both Japan and the U.S., male students agreed with the opinions in which money is used as a tool buying friendship and a weapon controlling people. Male students' power oriented money attitude is seen common in both countries. Female students in both countries have a similar tendency to value saving attitude. They preferred to save money more than male students. Then, in both countries female students spend money when they are frustrated. Typical money attitudes in which gender roll is reflected are observed in both countries.
