Police said Tuesday that 10 million yen in cash was found Monday night in a garbage disposal facility in Hiroshima.
According to police, the money was all in 10,000-yen bills. Some were in bundles and some were torn up. TBS reported that a monitor spotted the money on a conveyor belt. Although the facility is used mainly by garbage trucks, individuals are also allowed to use it for disposal, officials said.
Police said the money will be held as lost property for three months. If no one claims it by then, it will be turned over to the municipal government which operates the garbage disposal facility.
