Japan has relatively lower crime rates compared to other countries and has been praised as a very safe country.
Foreign tourists returning home from Japan are surprised at the remarkable honesty of the Japanese people, such as how dropped cameras are returned to their rightful owners, or how the streets are lined with vending machines.
However, this does not mean that crime is non-existent in Japan. Pay careful attention to your surroundings as you enjoy your tour around Japan.
Do not hesitate to visit the nearest KOBAN or dial 110 if you are in any trouble and need immediate assistance.
