Tokyo: Do you have dark secrets? Ever worry about dropping dead and having this grim, final thought: "Oh no! I haven't cancelled my secret subscription to Totally Justin magazine, or hidden those fantasies I wrote about me and Judi Dench in the vegetable pantry. My memory will be tarnished forever!"Yes, it's an awful way to spend your precious final moments.
To the rescue comes Keepers, a firm in Japan. You instruct your family to immediately notify Keepers upon your death. A team will shoot round and tidy everything up, discreetly disposing of anything unsavory.
Keepers' boss Taichi Yoshida told News Post Seven that he frequently finds women's clothing in men's apartments, and once found 1,000 indecent videos in the apartment of a demure kindergarten teacher.
Other than those who tend to make "treat every day as if it may be your last" a sort of guiding life principle, pretty much everyone has secrets and could make use of this service.
