The Bank of Japan building is one of the architectural monuments worth visiting. It houses Japan's central bank.

This historical building is not a must-see but a fine example of Meiji era architecture in a neo-baroque style. It was built in 1896.

This is where JPY as a currency produced and circulated throughout Japan. Building itself is also beautiful and surrounded by flowers. It also has a currency museum inside.

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!

Nearby
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
