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

この手袋はオーナを見つけたでしょうか。歩道のもう一つの使い方です。他の国では、落とし物こんな風に見せる習慣はあまり見られません。

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.
