Japan will redesign its banknotes to incorporate the latest anti-forgery techniques. Finance Minister Taro Aso announced the makeover on Tuesday. The design changes will be the first since 2004.
The new 10,000-yen note will feature Eiichi Shibusawa, a famed industrialist in modern Japan. He is known as the "father of Japanese capitalism." The reverse side will feature the Tokyo train station building.
