Tokyo Stock Exchange Inc
During GMW, Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) welcomed eight groups of students from five high schools and three junior high schools, from different parts of Japan. During the visits, students attended lectures from TSE staff about the mechanism of stock companies, the roles of stock exchanges, and the meaning of investment. The students also enjoyed guided tours of the TSE facilities. The tours gave them the chance to observe how TSE staff monitor the stock market on a real-time basis in the Market Center, see from afar the media booths where news presenters record programs to beam across the world, and view the listing bell from the balcony housing, which is rang by corporate executives in a listing ceremony.

Buntetsu Museum of Bank Notes and Coins
To celebrate GMW2018, Buntetsu Museum of Bank Notes and Coins used its social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter and their own website, to raise awareness of global currencies and educate young people on counterfeiting and using money safely.
