Lost Property Nozawa rarely lost in Translation
One of the most impressive facets of Japan for some overseas guests is the safety and honesty of the country and the Japanese people. Sadly these days there are not too many places in the world where you can leave your wallet or mobile phone in a park or a train and be confident you will see it again.
In Japan it would be pretty rare that you didn’t. In Japan there is a huge amount of lost property that overseas guests leave behind and most get reunited with their valuable possessions.
Nozawa Onsen being a small Japanese country town is even safer and we often have guests losing things on the journey up or on the slopes. We call the Train station for them or the resort and inevitably the items are returned with a smile. Unless they are under 50cm of fresh snow!
Living in the village we never feel the need to lock our doors, bikes or cars. Which is terrific as no need for keys, which can lose on the slopes when out skiing! Hope that never changes…
