Comment 日本銀行 (Nippon Ginko Ken / Bank of Japan). Observe : Sugawara - no - MICHIZANE (845 - 903): State man and poet, who left many writings (anthology) Chinese. A great minister and literary man in 894, he refused to serve as ambassador to China, believing that the Japanese no longer had to learn from their neighbors. He died in exile, his name was deified and a shrine (KITANO) was erected at KYOTO.
