Learn about the country's economic history at Bank of Japan, a grand and photogenic building, apparently modeled on the National Bank of Belgium. From within these imposing walls, in 1871, the country's present currency was first produced and then circulated. Nowadays, the building houses a museum detailing the history of Japan's monetary system, from its feudal origins to its current state. The museum also offers many artifacts to observe and inspect, from historic coins to scales and counting apparatus. If you visit on a Tuesday you can join in a free English-language guided tour, but you'll have to reserve your place at least week in advance.

  • Went to Bank of Japan and the currency Museum. Sharpened the appearance first, rURI is a splendid building looked around. Can only be specified for the important cultural asset. In the money Museum Tour, but in time without convenience here. Not likely to go for a while, and find the net again, since October, have done large-scale seismic isolation work in the region. In construction everywhere nowhere around, seems excessive to explore.

  •  Is the first time I saw this amazing building, and had told Bank of Japan head office, strangely makes sense. I try to say the Bank of Japan's building when some blame, but even they are dignified. Location of Mitsukoshi Department store close. Is close to Tokyo station, Japan's leading power is accumulated, and I really feel.

  • The stately building. Central Bank! I even like atmosphere is like a building. Fishing information in the Nihonbashi River somewhat Goby can so be it also. And to improve the economy is to improve the fishing itself, but don't help on the Bank of Japan.

And outbreak of higher inflation during the Seinan war expenditure procurement for the printing Bill for the economic mess the increasing need of the National Bank, the Bank of Japan was born. After providing Tokyo station Tatsuno kingo is building, building a massive. Apparently it's under construction is currently building a little disappointing but couldn't take any pictures. And the view from the top is the shape of the roof Yen to is just a coincidence because theories can be seen from that location to publish national money will be heard, but founded the circular is the monetary unit was.
