- The Bank of Japan has amassed 160,000 pieces to archive Japan's currency history. The careful observer will leave the museum having learned that during the early Meiji Era (1868-1911) more than 240 han (feudal domains) were producing paper money. Pure gold oban and koban, pre-yen sen coins, counting boxes and wartime currencies (such as ceramic coins) are samples of what you will find on display. Examples of paper money and coins from overseas are included in the collection. Admission: Free
