Lost passport in Japan

Posted on October 5, 2015 | in Travellers Questions | by

Hi all, my wife just texted me she's lost her passport at a music festival in Japan. Odds of her finding it are slim, just wondering if anyone's lost their passport abroad before, and how hard is it to leave the country? She's Australian, coming back to Australia in 4 days. I'm not gonna lie I'm panicking a little here feeling helpless and wondering if she's gonna have any trouble at the Airport.

Anyone had this happen to them? What do you do? edit: thanks for all the replies everyone. As luck would have it someone actually found it and turned it in at the festival. Huge relief.
