The 8th Atom (Astro boy) Currency has started!


The Atom Currency, the local currency which started in 2004, makes the 8th anniversary this year, and the circulation starts again from April 7, 2011.


From the 8th period, the Wako branch newly participates in, as the 3rd branch in Saitama prefecture, following Kawaguchi and Niza branch.  We look forward to your support for this new branch.


The good news is that we have confirmed the safety of Sendai branch suffering from Tohoku Region off Pacific Ocean Earthquake. Now the NPO operating Sendai branch is engaged in supportive activities for the sufferers in the region. The Sendai branch is planning to upload information about the disaster on their site from now on.
