Then again, obaachans walk around with millions of Yen in their bags and make transactions of huge amounts.

Perhaps they oughta stop piling the cash on the counters....the security and cash-handling procedures in this country serve as open invitations for criminals.....with the hard times facing Ken-6-pack these days, I expect to read more and more of these little tales!

Uniqlo? Yes they should start to check all camera footage from them. And watch for a guy in a green jacket and white trousers trying to buy a suit at Mitsukoshi. He won't be going to Aoki with 5 million.

But knowing this kind of guy he'll blow it all at a Pachinko parlour.
