On 8th January 2016, a writer, Clara Sunaga, and her husband came back from Tokyo, Japan, to visit her parental home in Taiwan. They took a taxi around the Calligraphy Greenway and Civic Square in Taichung City, going back to the home on Section 2 of Chang-ping Road. Not long after arriving, they found out that the camera was missing and reported the case to Si-ping police station. Two officers of Si-ping police station, Lin, Chun-I and Ke, Kai-chun, immediately tried all the ways they could to scrutinize the videos recorded by surveillance cameras and retrieved the missing camera after just only over an hour. After Mr. and Mrs. Sunaga returned to Japan, they were very impressed and felt grateful for the police’s efficiency, saying that Taiwan’s police were better than Japan’s. No wonder Taiwan could be called the safest country to live in, and Taichung City, the friendliest and most advanced city.
Clara Sunaga stated that she had been married to Japan for almost fifty years, and she seized the opportunity to travel Taiwan with her husband but lost their camera. The camera had shot many precious moments, such as family and friends gatherings and the time she gave her book as a present to her alma maters, National Taichung Girls’ Senior High School and Providence University. Therefore, she was very anxious when she discovered it was missing. Surprisingly, after it was reported, two officers, Lin, Chun-I and Ke, Kai-chun, were enthusiastic and resourceful enough to search through the videos of surveillance system and retrieve the missing camera. Even though Japan’s police are world famous, Taiwan’s showed greater efficiency, leaving precious and unforgettable memories for Mr. and Mrs. Sunaga. Therefore, Mrs. Sunaga came back to Taiwan this time and brought her book, Sumida River: 40 Years of Japan’s Spring Snow, and a cake to visit the director of the police station as well as the officer who was in charge of this case, Lin, Jiun-yi, to express her appreciation to the police’s conscientiousness.
Because of Mr. and Mrs. Sunaga’s visit, Chief of the Fifth Precinct, Tsai, Jung-lin, not only gave them his book, The Law for Student Protection, but also wrote inspiring mottos from The Heart Sutra in solid pen calligraphy for them. The couple praised Chief Tsai not only for managing to find time besides work to culture himself, but also for encouraging teenagers and people to do good by publishing books, such as The Law for Student Protection, and by writing mottos in solid pen calligraphy, which they admired greatly. They went on to say that they would take Chief Tsai’s book back to Japan to promote Taiwan. It turned out that it was a missing camera that built a cultural friendship between Taiwan and Japan.
