A story making its rounds in the blogosphere is 10m Japanese yen ($131,000) that was left in a public toilet by an anonymous donor in Tokyo on Sept 29, 2011.
The neatly wrapped bills were found in a plastic shopping bag in a toilet for disabled people in the city hall of Sakado in the Tokyo suburbs.
The letter was found along with the money saying it should be donated to victims of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March.
The note read: “I am all alone and have no use for the money.”
Offiicials said that they would handover the money to the Red Cross if it was not reclaimed within three months.
Recently, 18 residents of a Tokyo apartment found around 1.8m yen stuffed into envelopes in their mailboxes.
