Crime map

The Tokyo Metropolitan Police publish an annual map of crimes in the city. It's fascinating to see where the hubs of bad behaviour are. I'm happy to say that Bunkyo-ku seems to be the safest inner-city section. Shinjuku, on the other hand, is a dangerous place.

My ku looks to be a hotspot for all things crime related!! It is not me - honest!!

Do you live in BUNKYO-KU? My husband used to live there when he was a boy. My parent lives in SUGINAMI-KU. AND I LOVE KICHIJYOUJI.

I wonder if the places I live/d in become red before or after I moved there...

Thanks babe that was v. interesting!

By the way Tracey dragged me into the backstreets of Shinjujku for drinks tonight - if only I'd read your post earlier...I should have know :P

Is any part of Tokyo dangerous? Relative to other parts of the city, some have worse crime stats than others, but do you avoid certain neighborhoods at night because they are actually unsafe?

There isn't a dangerous spot in all of Japan.


...


No really, there isn't.
