This is the kind of story that will restore your faith in Humanity!
During a late train ride, Mikan (@mikakawa1 on Twitter) finds something under her feet. It was a wallet but nobody was with her in the train. She looks inside the wallet and finds money. Nothing surprising so far.
But the number of bills inside the wallet is actually impressive! When she finishes to count, she finds out that there’s around 1 million yen in the wallet, which is around $10,000!
Well, at this point, I think everybody would think twice before to return the wallet. But Mikan didn’t hesitate a second! After finding the owner driving license with his home address on it, she managed to find his phone number after calling the phone provider.
She finally calls the owner.
“What, you found my wallet?” he replies.
He couldn’t believe it! He was trying to find it all day, without any luck.
During the call, the owner of the wallet insisted on giving Mikan a reward. She refused but he didn’t give up and he finally got her to accept ¥300,000 which is around $3,000.
They finally meet and she returns the wallet and get the reward.
But the story doesn’t end here!
Mikan gave back the wallet because “it was the right thing to do”, not for the reward. So she decided to also return the money (¥300,000) to the mailbox of the owner with a letter saying:
“Your appreciation is enough.”
