Act of Honesty

December 01, 1991

My wife and I recently returned from an enjoyable trip to Hong Kong, China and Japan. While walking in the Ginza area one day in Tokyo, I discovered my wallet was missing and reported the loss to the police, who were very friendly and appeared genuinely concerned that my wallet may have been stolen.

A few hours later, I received a call at my hotel room from a representative of the Tokyo Tourist Bureau informing me that my wallet had been found on the tour bus I had been on that morning. The caller expressed concern and told me that the wallet would be delivered to me the next morning.

At about 9:30 a.m. the next morning, I received a call from the front desk at the Imperial Hotel where I was staying. My wallet had been delivered with money, credit cards, etc., totally intact. I was not able to thank anyone from the Tokyo Tourist Bureau or give a small reward since the person delivering my wallet simply left it at the hotel. We are very grateful for this act of honesty and friendship.
