Theft in Japan

Where: Japan
When: Present times

I write for a fandom where a key element is the theft of property, specifically works of art. I'm mainly interested in knowing what the statute of limitations would be for theft. Maybe also what the possible sentence(s) would be, and what the consequences would be for knowledge of the thefts and not reporting to the police. I've googled "Japan statute of limitations (with and without the word theft)", "Japan theft laws", and "Japan theft sentence". The closest I could find was information on the now-abolished statute of limitations for homicide.
