Assessment[edit]

A nice start, but a bit short. Take a look at Bank of England for an example of how it can be done. Longer, more thorough introduction paragraph. (The Bank of Japan is Japan's central bank" is concise, and says pretty much all that needs to be said, but it's also disconcerting and unattractive in its brevity.) More extensive discussion of the history, and the functioning of the bank.


Base Borrowing Rate?[edit]

What is this "Base Borrowing Rate", and is it meant to be different from the official interest rate of 0.5%? 81.98.241.27 (talk) 10:30, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Who owns it?[edit]

Its shares are listed on JASDAQ - who are the main shareholders of the Bank of Japan? MMMMM742 (talk) 16:57, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

List of governors, names order[edit]

The list of governors seems to provide some names in the order of family name, given name (e.g. 3. Kawada Koichiro), which is Japanese style, and other names in the order given name, family name (e.g. 21. Makoto Usami), which is Western style. Is there a reason for this? If not, it probably needs to be fixed for consistency's sake.Praine (talk) 12:39, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
