9302 Return of Cash, Securities and Other Properties Left by Repatriated Persons (FAQ)

  Customs returns cash, securities and other properties left by repatriated persons.
  The properties kept in the customs offices include money in cash, securities and others that persons returned to Japan after the war had left at the customs office or shipping authority of the port of entry and/or money in cash, securities and others that had been left in trust with the consulate by Japanese residents abroad and that were later returned to Japan.
  A Certificate of Safekeeping issued by the customs or shipping authority or Certificate of Receipt issued by the consulate is required to have the relevant properties returned. Even if there is no such document, items may be returned if the ownership is clear. Since any family member of the owner may apply for return, please feel free to contact the nearest customs office if you know anything about the relevant properties.
