Taxi, Camera, Rail Pass

What do these items have in common? Not much, except in the context of this story.
When visiting Hikone castle in Japan, it was at least one mile from the train station so we took a taxi. Hikone is a small city so it was quite a surprise to discover a camera watching us. (Small yellow sign, lower left in photo).

But that's just the beginning of a huge coincidence. When heading back to the station we took another taxi. When we got in, the driver started a long conversation with my wife and she explained it to me. It was the very same taxi we had taken from the station. Unbeknowst to me, my valuable Japan Rail Pass had fallen out of my pocket on the way to the castle, The driver found it and took it to the police station. He then drove us there and I recovered the pass.
