Lost kids’ gloves placed in sidewalk garden for neighbor to find


It’s quite common to see that lost items are placed prominently at eye level, in case neighbors return to look for something that fell off a bike, stroller, or handbag. I’ve benefited myself from this system of retrieval and display. It’s a little late for gloves this year, but I hope they find their guardian.

      Great to hear that! I was so surprised to see this in Tokyo.

    I’m familiar with something similar. I’m from a temperate climate, but when I was living in New York I was surprised to encounter a lot of mismatched solitary gloves. Perhaps this system should be adopted in more cities.
