Yori is a native Japanese word meaning 'from'. It is normally written in hiragana as より, as in the following sign:

Tō-eki minami-guchi yori toho ippun
One minutes' walk from the south exit of this station

Curiously, however, yori can be found written in katakana as ヨリ in some signs, such as the one below:

Manga & Intānetto
380 en yori

Comics and Internet
from 380 yen
