People say Japan is a very safe country. To put that to the test, I left ¥200 in one of the most visible spots at the #rubykaigi venue yesterday.

Now there is ¥300.

@chancancode @yurikageyama My Hasselblad in the street a couple of years ago. I was 2 or 300m away, shooting with the model using another camera. That’s $25,000 worth of gear. Sat there for 25mins. In Ginza. On a busy Saturday. No one touched it. Love this country.

@chancancode As a japanese, my guess is that somebody thought the place was some kind of power-spot and that they put their coin for good luck.We do this at shrines and rivers, etc.

@chancancode I think people thought your 200 yen were "Osaisen", donation to shrine or temple, similar to the coin that you throw to the Fountain of Trevi.

@chancancode Lost my wallet, with more than 100,000 yen (at the time, well over $1,000+) on a train. Got the wallet with all the money and untouched credit cards back 8 hrs later.

@chancancode In Japan it is believed that gods are many in many places.
And there is a custom to place coins on stones or in ponds as a gift to God.
So, even if there are coins on things, we do not want to steal but to put more coins.

この方のツイートに笑ったよ。

モノリス大明神の話を思い出しますね…。
“(前略)誰かが願い事を書いた名刺を根元に置いた。
それに気付いた人が同じように名刺を置いた。
小銭も置かれるようになった。
何時の間にか賽銭箱が置かれ、御神酒や御供物が周りを埋め始めた。次の日、注連縄が掛けられた。(後略)”

@chancancode extra ¥100 may be offertory

@chancancode @dekagaijin Someone might have thought this was an offering for good luck, and reproduced the gesture (similar to small statues and altars around temples).

@chancancode @Five_on Finished my Christmas shopping and took an express train out of Marunouchi eki. I'd left a bag of wrapped presents on a bench. I stared at them as the train pulled away. Being an express, it was about 25 minutes before I could get off. They were right there when I got back.

@chancancode I think someone misunderstood that it was a donation box or something.

@chancancode When visiting japan, I was on my way to the train station after leaving the airport and had managed, after leaving the money changer, to leave my passport at the ticket terminal. As I was on my way to the train an employee there frantically ran after me with it to return it.

@chancancode @akokitamura Yes, but try going into a shop to buy something with cash and if you are even 1yen short, they won’t complete the transaction like anywhere else in the world. That’s another experiment I tried.

@chancancode @dakami I remember watching someone leave a professional TV camera on the street in Asakusa, pop into a Starbucks about 50m away, drink his coffee and have a cigarette and then come back to the camera. He wasn’t remotely concerned about the camera.

@chancancode Yeah I’ll second this. My wife got about $200 of goods returned to her after being tracked down. My 2 years of grad school nihongo gave patrons at a bar enough info to go find us & get our lost bag returned. Also witnessed a lost laptop on a subway stair for 24hrs untouched
