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.

Here you will find many interesting things about the development of money in Japan from time to time, and you can see the original form of their old coins are known as real Wado Kaichin, Oban and Koban.

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!
