The bag, hauled out of the sea off the coast of Ofunato city, was raised by a trawler on October 8.
According to local officials, it may have been swept out to sea by the March 11 tsunami, the Japan Times reports.
The bag contained nothing that
would help to identify the owner, the officials said.
The cash will go to the person who found it if the owner doesn”t come forward, the officials added. (ANI)
