|Top > Why Japan is An Easy Sell > Personal Safety
In today's world, nothing is as important to a traveler as personal safety. Indeed, there's no greater freedom than the freedom from fear, and Japan has long led the world as one of the most crime-free countries in the world. Even large cities like Tokyo and Osaka are remarkably safe. Not only are crimes against visitors virtually unheard of, but even personal belongings accidentally left in trains or taxis, on park benches, or in restaurants are generally turned in to the local police station and eventually make their way back to the rightful owner.
