One great thing about banks in Japan is that they update my bank book for me. No need to balance a checkbook here! Well, there are no checks here, but that is a separate issue. Anyway, my bank book ran out of pages so I went to the bank to get a new one. I got in just in time before 3pm when they shut the door while I was waiting. Bingo bango done and on the train by 3:08pm.
