A very high end bank that is very friendly and helpful to English speaking people. Probably other languages as well. Performed minor banking procedures to help with travel. That's about it! Very convenient.

It is a valuable building historically. The person who designed it is a person same as the person who designed Tokyo Station. His name is Mr.Kingo Tatsuno!
