How safe is Tokyo?

It’s generally a very safe place even after dark. It is pretty common to see a girl walking in the dark alone at the night. Although sometimes women should still choose to walk where the light is on and where people is around just so to prevent gripping from pervert. Especially be careful during rush hour train in Tokyo.

Super safe city. I never had any problem walking alone at night for some km (even when I was drunk). Difficult to find a city more safe for female than Tokyo. Considering the harassment in the street, there is none. Some men can ask you to go out with them (pretty rare and only in busy area) but if you say no, they immediately leave you alone. It’s my experience after living there for 6 months, the risk 0 doesn’t exist, but it’s super safe and nothing never happened to me.

Tokyo is probably the safest city I know. I've been living here for 20 years and never had anything bad happen to me. People are polite, respectful and have good boundaries. The streets are safe and clean. You can lose or leave your belongings and surely enough you'll find them again.

I felt very safe, there was plenty to do, cheap food everywhere (also options to splurge). Lots of fun shopping opportunities (Definitely check out Mega Don Quijote in either Shibuya or Shinjuku). Huge, tranquil parks in the middle of the city.

Felt very safe the food was amazing! People were very polite and it was easy to get around the city with the public transportation. Would recommend learning some basic japanese phrases before going! 10/10

Solo travel experience

When you finish a wonderful trip, everything goes back in your mind. I love this trip, I'm solo traveler so i can enjoy and spend a lot of time with another travellers. I love everything in Tokyo, Japan. But i only two things i hate are that No trash bin in the street and No eating outside.

I loved Tokyo and Osaka, Tokyo has fantastic character cafes, animal cafes, and regular cafes! Be aware that there’s nowhere to sit down/benches on the street, so if it’s really hot in summer you’ll have to duck into a store or buy a drink at a coffee shop. Check out Akihabara and my favorite, Takeshita Street in Harajuku! They have incredible dollar stores (my favorite is called 3COINS, you can personalize things like aprons, makeup bags, and chopsticks!)
