  • You can also see the remains of the safe inside the bank that was open until the other day. There are also ways to raise 100 million yen and other ways to display them. When it suddenly rained at the exit, the security guard gently said, "Please stay inside until the rain has stopped." Admission is free, but it is a friendly museum.

  • The tickets to Japan, and the information they have issued, and how to distinguish between genuine and false tickets. Some of them have room to place a ticket, and some of them can be "sic" their weight, it is very interesting.
