Garden employee scared to charge foreigners

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An attendant at a popular garden in the heart of Tokyo has cost the facility millions of yen because he was “too frightened” to ask foreign visitors to pay the admission fee.

The attendant, who is in his early 70s, admitted failing to collect the fees for Shinjuku Gyoen national garden after an investigation was launched following a tip-off by another employee.

The unnamed man, who has since retired, reportedly said he had stopped collecting admission fees of 200 yen (US$1.80) for adults and 50 yen for children in April 2014, and had continued to allow foreign visitors in free of charge for about two and a half years.
