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 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 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.

外国人「日本は安全な国だって聞いたから、試しに200円を目立つ所に置いてみたんだよ。戻ってきたらそれが300円に増えてたんだ。なんて国だ!」

Twitterの反応:
「お賽銭だと思われたんだよ。君は神社を作っちゃったんだね!」
「スタートアップを作ろう。日本でお金を置く。お金が増える!」

@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 Your ¥200 may be a couple.

Best wishes to the family.

@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.

@chancancode I guess that the two coins breeded.

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 @xotep it's just common sense, two happy ¥100, got married, and produced one more ¥100..

now they are a happy family.. 😂

@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.

Jedan Kanađanin je napravio eksperiment u Japanu.

Kaže da nije očekivao ovaj rezultat.

Za vašu informaciju, ¥200 je oko €2.

@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.

meanwhile here in urban america, everything that is not cemented down (simply bolting it into the ground is not enough to prevent theft, as we found out the hard way) gets stolen

@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

@chancancode I try to pay forward Japanese hospitality to the tourists here -- there are often elderly Japanese tourists in Zadar or Zagreb who can't speak English well, and I go out of my way to make sure they get whatever they want. Love doing this, wish I could do it full time :-)

Безопасно ли жить в Японии?
Человек решил проверить это и оставил в заметном месте ( якобы забыл или потерял)в шоппинг центре 200 йен.
На следующий день пришел проверить- там лежало 300 йен.
