銀行 (ぎんこー) 

sounds like ginko (from ginko tree, those trees with  the weird smelling fruit/nut)

sample mnemonics –

1. in the apocolyptic future, ginko nuts are the only form of currency. you find a stash of them, and since you can only carry so much, you go to the ginko bank to deposit your ginko nuts. in the future the banks only hold ginko nuts.

2. open a new bank account and get a free basket of ginko nuts! what, why would i want a basket of ginko nuts?

3. you open the door to the bank and tons of ginko nuts pile out, burying you. thats the last time you go to that bank.

i’m back!
