I wish we all had “lifesavers coins” like, to be able to use the Lucky piggy bank designed by Seiji Fujimoto. “I’ve always wanted to keep one 5-yen coin in my wallet. Go-en or 5-yen coins-the sound of the word evokes a clear, unobstructed hole and that particular color that for the Japanese people is a symbol of good fortune. The piggy-bank that is made by saving these 5-yen and 50-yen coins does not greatly contribute to make our life easier, but it puts us in a good mood”.
