(3) Pearl ink

When viewed from different angles, a semi-transparent pattern printed with pink pearl ink appears in the blank areas of the left and right margins of the front of the note.


(4) Microprinting

Like notes issued since December 1, 1993, the 2000 yen note has the words "NIPPON GINKO" ("Bank of Japan" in Japanese) printed in micro letters. The micro letters printed intaglio are smaller on the 2000 yen note than those on existing denominations. Also, with the use of background printing, micro letters of different sizes forming curved lines have been introduced.




(5) Intaglio printing

The ink of the Chinese characters showing the denomination and the picture of the Shurei-mon Gate is raised higher from the surface of the paper than that on other banknotes. This gives the banknote's surface a rough feeling, thus making it easy to distinguish from other denominations.


(6) Tactile marks (intaglio printing)

To assist the visually impaired in detecting the 2000 yen note by touch, a recognition symbol with a rougher texture, printed intaglio, is adopted instead of the watermark symbols used for other notes.


(7) Luminescent ink

As in notes issued since December 1, 1993, the Governor's seal on the front side glows orange under ultraviolet light. Likewise, the blue parts of the background pattern fluoresce yellowish-green.
