Items: Image of a Japanese occupation note from World War II

Extra information: There is Japanese near the "1" at the bottom left corner and at the bottom center of the image. I'm looking for the characters typed out, a translation, and romanization if possible. There is an image of a similar note on the wiki, but the text on this image is the same and should be easier to read.

Thanks in advance!

@edit: I can only recognize the characters:
  • 臣 (bottom left corner, bottom left character),
  • 國 (third character in the line of seven),
  • 帝 (fourth in the same line) and
  • 日 (sixth in the same line).
Passed it on to a Japanese friend in the hopes he can read it, will message User:Gurgate as well. – YATTA, ヽ( ° ヮ° )ノ | 2013年09月10日、01:11:51
Apparently I got the couple of characters right, but mistook the order - in that period, Japanese was still read from right to left (present day it's from left to right). The characters in the row of seven are the following: (right-left) 大日本帝国政府. The four small characters are the following: (top-down, right-left) 大蔵大臣.
Double-checked by Gurgate in this thread – where he also gave me this link – and by two friends on skype, each independently from each other. Apart from that, I have also been told that even half of Japanese cannot read the characters (: a bit like medieval western script.
