The 10,000 yen note (1万円紙幣 1Man-en shihei) is the largest banknote denomination of the Japanese yen.


The front side of the 10,000 yen note includes a portrait of Yukichi Fukuzawa, a Meiji era philosopher and the founder of Keio University. The back of the note shows a drawing of the Hōō (鳳凰, Fenghuang) in the Hall of the Phoenix, Byōdō-in.[1]

Extensive anti-counterfeiting measures are present in the banknote. They include intaglio printing, holograms, microprinting, fluorescent ink, latent images, watermarks, and angle-sensitive ink.[2]

From 2020, a portrait used the image of Shibusawa Eiichi.[3]
