Mysterious money has been falling from the sky and appearing in mailboxes in Japan.
Bills worth about 960,000 yen (NT$260,000) "fell" in front of a convenience store on July 25. People were worried about the falling money and called the police.
"We can just say the money came from the skies," a policeman said.
On the same day a woman in Kobe found an envelope with one million yen (NT$277,168) in her mailbox.
In addition, envelopes full of cash have been found in dozens of men's restrooms since June.
The bathroom money has come with letters asking people to do good deeds.
Police admit they have no idea who is leaving the money. No one can say if more people have collected money and not told the police.
Police are holding most of the reported money in case the rightful owner or owners decide to claim it.
