No. If I'm not mistaken (again), the possibilities are 1 rin, 1/2 sen, 1 sen and 2 sen. So...

Is this coin's diameter less than 25mm?

Well, I think we're looking at a 1 sen coin minted 1880-1884, inclusive. I'll go with the highest mintage of those:

My guess is an 1884 Japan 1 sen of Emperor Meiji.
