Something that is about to disappear soon
This 2000-yen bill was introduced in 2000. Now we use four kinds of bill, 1,000 yen, 2,000 yen, 5,000 yen and 10,000 yen bill.
But this bill have been very unpopular. There are some reasons. Many vending machines cannot accept this bill, and people are not easy to make a mental count with 2000 yen bill.
Anyway, the biggest reason is that people don't need this bill at all. It is not inconvenient for most people to use only 1,000, 5,000 and 10,000 bills.
So why was 2,000 yen bill introduced? Because it was introduced just in memory of holding G-8 summit in Okinawa, Japan, in 2000. It is so silly!
Now this bill doesn't go current very much. And it is about to disappear soon.
But if we use more plastic for a big purchase like US, this bill will be more popular.
