Lost my jacket on the super train

Hello. I was on holiday through Japan in December last year. I was on one of the shinkansens when I accidentally left my jacket on the train. I know its in lost property since when I inquired someone pointed it out. However at the time it was all the way up the other side of Japan.

Currently I'm in Australia, and I was just wondering if there was a way to collect or to have my jacket sent to me from Japan?

Let us know,



Hi there,

I am not sure about the possibilities. Do you remember what train you where traveling on when you lost it?

You could try and contact the JR East lost and found department, you can even call them from overseas.

Hope this helps!
