Bank of Japan Naha Branch renovates exhibition space

The Bank of Japan, Naha Branch, opened its renovated permanent exhibition space Monday in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of its move to Omoromachi, Naha City.

The space features a 50-inch monitor showing videos introducing the bank’s business, an model of Shureimon Gate made entirely of paper scraps cut of discarded bills totaling ¥100 million, a measuring instrument that allows the visitor to compare one’s height to a stacked amount of banknotes of the same height, and more.

The exhibition space is the Bank of Japan’s only facility in Japan that anyone can visit for free without a prior reservation. Last year the space had 2,308 visitors.

The exhibition space is open 9:00 to 15:00 on weekdays
