Money eases all problems.

The Junin Ryogae improves commerce for the owning faction by managing the availability of money in the economy. The building improves happiness in a province, and also improves the quality of geishas recruited there. After all, bankers must have their small pleasures. Compared to medieval merchants, all modern industries and businesses make extensive use of banking services. In the rapidly modernising Japan of the Meiji period, the city of Osaka became a centre for banking, with much of the work of a central bank being done by the "Junin Ryogae", the Ten Exchange Houses. Although these were not modern bankers, they did lend money to other banks, the governments of individual domains, and manage the markets of gold-back cash and silver-backed bank-issue money. In effect, they controlled the exchange and interest rates for Japan.
