  • There was the time in Otaru so we went to the Museum of the Bank of Japan. The Interior of the old Bank is exposed. Also, was able to feel the size and weight of the flow of money and fortune.

  • If you have a lot of time, you can visit this museum. The exposition is designed more for the Japanese, a little information in English. From an interesting, possibility to leave in the hands of 100000000jen (a million dollars), see Bank doors and bolts.
