(Of course it isn’t, it’s universal!) About ten+ years ago I remember reading of a case in central Osaka whereby an American tourist found an envelope stuffed with cash on the street. Being a law-abiding citizen, she handed it in the nearest information counter. The two employees, seeing that she was a clueless gaijin, took the money and pocketed it. What they hadn’t banked on was the fact that she would return later with a Japanese interpreter. They ended up getting fired. I’m not sure what happened to the money, though.
