Lost anything? Go to the Koban!
Japanese police boxes are so useful, because the policemen are kind and willing to help people who are having difficulties finding the way. Also, Japanese people tend to be honest and caring for other people – they deliver lost items to the police box, especially if the item looks expensive or is a wallet. Therefore, if you lose anything important, a good place to look after you have searched everywhere is the police station. Although you may have to fill out forms, it is a good idea to tell the policemen the information so that they can contact you if someone delivers the lost item.
