1. Large characters

” Characters or letters that are large in size.


2. Alternate numbers

” These numbers are provided in lieu of regular kanji numbers for use in contexts where accuracy and avoiding fraud are critical such as in finance and legal agreements. In handwritten documents, for example, it would be easy for a forger to add a line above or below a numeral ˆź to make “ń, changing, say, ˆź–œ‰~ (10,000 yen) to “ń–œ‰~ (20,000 yen); the alternate numbers prevent such alterations.

The list below gives the typical number kanji followed by the ‘厚 numbers and the Arabic equivalent.
