Japan - What have I got? WWII Bonds, maybe?

I've been around militaria for decades, but this is the first time that I've seen this type of thing.
I'm guessing that these are bonds. A friend from church showed them to me.

Picked up by GI's during the occupation. Note the warships, tanks, planes... Way cool, I thought.
But what are they, and what are they worth?

I can't seem to get the photos to upload. If someone could tell me what I'm doing wrong, would appreciate it.

They are Japanese war bonds.... Many different ones exits, worth $12.00 to $20.00 depending on graphics and denomination. Sometimes a lot less.

During the war, the Japanese government issued tons of war bonds. But, they became worthless due to the hyperinflation after the war. Note that they are already invalid. So, they cannot be changed to money.
