Crime in Japan is sadly on the rise, but compared to many other countries, it is still incredibly safe. Not only that, but thankfully there’s still a good deal of honesty about too. If you happen to leave your bag or wallet somewhere, there’s a very good chance you’ll get it back. Money and valuables still intact.
Along the same lines, it’s not uncommon to see shops such as this.
Customers are expected to just leave the money for whatever they buy. The amazing this is, they do. And nobody steals the money either!
Except gaijin of course.
