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.

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.

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
