2019 marks a special year for the Japanese calendar: the end of the 31-year-long Heisei period end with the abdication of Emperor Akihito. To commemorate the occasion, Takara-Tomy has created the Timeslip Bankman Coin Bank with representations of Tokyo's most iconic views: Tokyo Skytree (a symbol of the Heisei period) and Tokyo Tower (a classic achievement of the Showa era).
