A couple from China have been forced to post back a toilet seat they stole from a Japanese hotel.
The couple were on a trip to Japan and stole a toilet seat from their room in the Toyoko Inn hotel in Nagoya on October 17, reports Huanqiu, an affiliation with the People's Daily Online.
Upon discovering the couple had taken the expensive Japanese toilet seat, the hotel reportedly demanded the couple return the item.
Upon realising the toilet seat had been taken, the hotel called the group's tour guide and reported the theft to the police, according to the Huanqiu report.
The couple, named Li and Chen, claimed they took the toilet seat because they thought it was left by other guests who had stayed in the same room.
The couple published an apology letter online which said: 'I hope the hotel and local travel agency can treat this with leniency. I promise this behaviour won't happen again.'

It would have been better to say nothing than they thought it had been left behind. I laughed out loud.
