With an incredibly low crime rate, Japan is one of the safest nations in the world. It seems sense that the Japanese are quite proud of this. Japanese residents frequently leave their doors unlocked, kids are completely secure riding the subway by themselves, and tourists can feel at ease walking through the cities at night. The cultural ideal in Japan that people always put the needs of the community above their individual wants contributes to the country’s low crime rate. You may encounter certain circumstances that seem risky or like idiotic behavior to you, but which are entirely acceptable in Japan. In Tokyo, the largest city in the world, you can fall asleep on the train and yet wake up with your wallet and phone in hand because Japan is so safe. You may even witness some salarymen sprawled out on the street after having one or two too many drinks, yet their valuables won’t be taken from them. Always make an effort to find anything you left behind in a restaurant or on a train since it’s very probable that someone saved it for you or gave it to the police!
4. Incredible food
Despite the fact that Japanese food is available throughout the world, the nation draws millions of travelers every year only to sample real Japanese cuisine. Don’t forget to enjoy some fresh sushi at Tsukiji Fish Market or the delectable street cuisine like takoyaki in Osaka. Sushi conveyor belts and sake bars are also common experiences. For many tourists, traveling to Japan gives them the chance to indulge in some real Kaiseki cuisine. Kaiseki is a traditional style of cooking that originated in Japan over a period of thousands of years and uses ingredients that are uncommon elsewhere in the globe. The best sushi, ramen, and tempura can be found in any unassuming, seedy establishment. Even the cuisine served at konbinis is delectable and consistently freshly prepared. Tokyo is the city with the most Michelin stars worldwide and also has the most three-star restaurants (12)! You have a once-in-a-lifetime experience waiting for you when you combine it with a range of traditional Japanese drinks!
