One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So I was 500 km away from Kyoto (where I stayed with my friends and left all my belongings) and was lost in the mountains without money. After hours of walking I finally get to a trainstation and use my last Yen to buy a cheap ticket to get to the next station with the intention of going further illegally. It was almost night and I knew I would never get to Kyoto by this means anyway because I took a slow train (the only way to scam the train system in Japan). So I was searching another way to not sleep outside on my computer while waiting for the train and a very social man (probably from thailand) came to talk to me. He was the kind of person that you would trust immediatly. We talked a little about life in Japan because he was studying there and he told me that if I went to the police they would help me get to Kyoto or lend me money. I absolutely needed to get to Kyoto tonight to help a friend move his luggage after his job, and this friend is a bit of a gangsta so I found it too funny that the police might get me back to Kyoto. I decided to give it a try and stopped at a station in the countryside to look for a police station. It was 1 a.m. The place where I stopped was empty of life, and the next police station was 50km away according to an old lady that seemed to belong to a Miyazaki film. So I started to walk and after some time I get to a dark factory with only one employee. I begin to talk to him to know if I'm on the right track and he called the police for me. He was kind but did not speak english and I had to try to talk to him while we were waiting for the police. One hour later, they come and ask me my passport. It was in Kyoto. They thought I was an illegal immigrant because I did not have a passport and did not have money. I also had a sleeping bag because I spent a few days in the mountains. So they arrested me and told me they can't help me in any way. They wanted to see my passport with their own eyes otherwise they would not let me go (but we were lost in the mountains ! ). My friends were working and could not help me. I began to fear having to stay in prison for too long because I had to see a girl I was trying to seduce in Kobe at 12a.m. thz next day. I tried to reason the police and offer alternative solutions (like call the airport to confirm I was not an illegal immigrant, that one of my friends could bring my passport to Kyoto police station instead of this one, I told them that I would not have been the one to call them if I was a criminal...) but it did not work. They did not speak english at all and did not have wi-fi so we had to go at a supermarket at 3.30a.m. to communicate with a shitty online translator. They forced me to call my potential girlfriend while she was sleeping. Hopefully she came with my passport the next day and I was released. She arrived at the police station around 12a.m. so in the end we could see each other at the planned time. All is well that ends well (apart from the fact that she had to skip class and was grounded...).
