TOKYO (Reuters) - The vast majority of Japanese companies expect the yen to firm against the dollar by year-end, a Reuters monthly poll showed on Thursday, suggesting further weakness in the local currency could catch businesses off guard.

The yen's downturn this year, which accelerated in recent weeks, has burdened households with higher costs of everything from food to fuel. The rapid declines have also raised alarm among big companies and policymakers, making it difficult for companies to plan for the future.

The currency has lost about 20% versus the dollar since the start of this year, hitting a fresh 24-year low of just shy of 145 yen last week. The yen has been hammered against the dollar due to the growing gap between U.S. and Japanese interest rates.

"The yen has weakened so rapidly that it has meant a big impact on business management," wrote a manager at one manufacturer in the automotive industry, responding on the condition of anonymity.

During the Aug. 31 - Sept. 9 survey period, the yen was trading in a range of 138-145 to the dollar.

The survey was conducted before Japanese authorities this week gave strong indications that they were uncomfortable with the currency's sharp declines and appeared to be preparing to intervene to prop it up. On Wednesday, the yen was at 143.62 to the dollar.

"From the standpoint of sustaining economic growth and coping with the procurement costs of raw materials, moderate rises in the yen are desirable," wrote a manager at a maker of industrial ceramics used in chips.

Asked how they expected the yen to move against the dollar by year-end, 45% of firms - the biggest chunk - pegged it at 136-140, followed by 28% at 131-135, the survey showed.

Some 11% put it at 126-130, while 3% set it at 120-125. Only 13% saw it weakening further from 141, meaning many firms could be put on the back foot if the currency were to weaken again.

Separately, a slim majority of respondents want the yen to rise moderately while 28% want it to fall modestly.

INBOUND TOURISM

So far, Japan has not been able to capitalise on one big potential benefit from the weak yen: inbound tourism. Thanks to strict border controls the world's third-largest economy is still only seeing a trickle of foreign tourists.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida this month raised the daily cap for entrants into Japan to 50,000 and the government is now considering scrapping the cap altogether by October, the Nikkei business daily reported on Sunday.

The government is also considering removing a requirement that only visitors on package tours are allowed in, the newspaper said.

Still, the survey showed corporate Japan - which has broadly lobbied to ease restrictions on tourism - believes a recovery will be slow in coming.

A slim majority said they don't expect the government's easing of border controls to help inbound tourism recover.

Some 28% think inbound demand will return to pre-pandemic levels by end-2023 while 18% expect it to return to those levels in 2024 or later. A full 20% see it never returning to those levels.

One-third said they were unaffected by inbound tourism.

The Reuters Corporate Survey, conducted for Reuters by Nikkei Research, canvassed around 500 big non-financial Japanese firms on condition of anonymity, allowing them to speak more freely.

Separately, the survey also found that three quarters of firms are concerned about the possibility of an incident in Taiwan, given the political sensitivies around the island claimed by China.
