Safekeeping monkey

A notice in English from a Japanese hotel.

The first item begins "Valuables -- I become an each person safekeeping bottom monkey..."

(My usual disclaimer on this sort of thing: I’m not making fun of whoever produced this notice. Using a foreign language is not easy and full of pitfalls, and if I tried to write something in Japanese, even after years of study, I’d probably do far worse, and it wouldn’t bother me if it gave somebody a laugh.)
