I keep getting my umbrella stolen in Japan

OK so Japan is one of the safest countries in the world but I have to say that this umbrella theft is driving me crazy. I’ve had about 3 stolen in Japan since I’ve been here, and it’s only started to rain this week!

I do have to admit that my umbrella is also one of those generic 100 yen type of umbrellas. Yes, see-through, white handle, that’s the one.

I ended up taking a similar looking one, cause I had to go home. I guess it’s alright for this blatant theft to happen all over the place…

    You must break the cycle! I have had two stolen since arriving in Tokyo. Stealing someone else’s is tempting but its a vicious cycle. I always break down and buy another from a Family Mart.

      I do the same… but I was reading on some blogs that people put some funny labels on the handle so it doesn’t get stolen. But I think you should stop buying more… you keep funding the movement. =)
