Safest city in the world: Tokyo

The first thing to consider is that safety isn’t just about how likely you are to be a victim of violent crime. In many cities, more visible crimes have fallen: in New York in 1990, the homicide rate peaked with 2,245 murders; last year it saw a record low of 328.

But new risks are emerging: terrorism is a serious concern for any major city, and cyber crime is a growing threat – as cities increasingly rely on technology and connectedness, everything from traffic lights to air-traffic control, even sewage systems, could be vulnerable to hackers.

According to the Safe Cities Index, put together by the Economist’s Intelligence Unit (EIU), the title of world’s safest goes to the city that is also the most populous: Tokyo…

Tokyo: Diversity is not their strength. No mass immigration. Interesting.

  • Mal

    Good on ’em. For all their sexual nuttiness, the Japanese have their heads screwed on dead right when it comes to the musloids.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    No Muslims, no third-word sub-humans, so of course crime is going to be minimal.

    • Frau Katze

      Yep. Meanwhile, we’re importing more and more crappy people, it’s all downhill from here. It won’t affect me, but I have grandchildren.

  • I felt safe when I was there.

    Museums were shut on Mondays, though.

  • El Martyachi

    … unless game shows are included.

    • This is a form of torture in Japan.

      • El Martyachi

        I’m not even going to pretend to try and understand.

        • It would be funny to see- oh- Trudeau take part in this sort of torture.

  • lolwut?

    What the media doesn’t report, all those protests to have US bases shut down are mostly because of Black soldiers raping Japanese women.

    The word “kokujin” (Black person) appeared a lot in protest signs which the media stopped showing when they found out of the word meant.

    Many bars in Japan have rules specifically designed to keep them out.

    The Japanese justice system also has a near 100% conviction rate
    so I’m guessing you’d better be smart to be a criminal in Japan.

    • Yes and no.

      A survey found that US servicemen committed fewer crimes than citizens in Okinawa (Japanese link, I’m afraid):


      While there have been some rapes in the past, most offenders appear to be non-black and are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

      Asians tend to be paranoid and racist some times.

      • lolwut?

        A little digging and you’ll find the majority were “Youth”.
        They were never charged, the military Quietly whisked them out of the country
        before any chance of a charge could be laid.

        When the protests first started popping up over a decade ago the Japanese symbols for “kokujin” were clearly visible on signs and that word was being spoken openly at protests. The media in the beginning failed to bother translating what was written on them and only discovered it after viewers did
        translation on forums.

        The rules barring foreigners from bars is there to keep them out.
        Just like North America and Europe, they go in, buy te cheapest drink possible

        and spend all their time harassing women.

        • “Youth” can’t join the army.

          I’m not saying black Americans never cause problems there. I’m only saying that most of the cases never involve them.

          Asians have rather peculiar attitudes towards black people and it isn’t always because some blacks are jerk-offs to them.

          It is correct that Asians aren’t hampered by political correctness. They have that going for them.

          • lolwut?

            “Youth” as in the codeword the media use to hide race when blacks are involved in crime.

            You need to do some digging, they sure as hell avoid posting pictures
            even when they are charged. If the perps name isn’t obvious that he’s black, the names of the family members defending them tend to be.

            That attitude is a lot from from witnessing what goes on in Europe and America…

          • Again, I never said that black Americans never cause problems overseas or elsewhere. I am suggesting that Asians view darker skinned people negatively and sometimes without cause. I have had friends this has happened to.

            When one has time, listen to Adam Carolla’s take on Koreans as a “natural enemy”. You can find it on Youtube.

          • lolwut?

            As Pamela Geller said if her speech about the majority of Muslims being peaceful argument.

            The Majority are irrelevant.

          • It’s time to become relevant again.

          • lolwut?

            Neither have been relevant.

            Both are incomparable with modern society..
            one is stuck in the 7th century and the other is the product of the African environment which is tied to their very being, their DNA.

          • Yeah, I’m not buying this biology is your total destiny thing.

          • lolwut?

            It’s not about destiny, it’s about skills and abilities that have manifested themselves in races based on the environment
            they were exposed to for thousands of years.

            Left to their own devices, blacks will simply fall back on their instincts that tells them how survive in the harsh environment of Africa.

            That’s why they are impulsive, it works there, get what you need NOW
            whites learned to plan ahead because of harsh winters, same with Asians, harsh but largely predictable changes in the environment
            Typhoons, hurricanes, floods…. they learned to adapt and plan for the future.

            We (the west) have fucked up that system by feeding and coddling them and expecting them to act and do what we have done.

            building, planning for the the future…

            Just like breeds of dogs or birds some are just naturally better at some things and not others, it’s coded into their system and is passed on from generation to generation.

            We are, like it or not, just another animal on this planet.

          • But then one would have to explain how black Americans could never be yam farmers in Africa, how Koreans emerged from rural living to be one of the most wired countries on the planet or how Israelis could transform a desert into a vibrant society.

          • lolwut?

            Koreans didn’t emerge out of anything, whites who saved their asses from the Chinese in the 50’s lifted them out of their rice farmer lifestyle and made them what they are today.

            Same with the Japanese, Western countries fighting each other over access to Asian markets GAVE them the technology they have now and the technology they used to attack the USA. France, England and the USA were handing them technology hand over fist in an effort to gain dominance each other in Asia.

            Asians invent NOTHING, it’s either given to them or they steal it.

            Black farms fail when white people aren’t there to show them how to do it.

          • But according to the slipshod understanding of genetics, they should be back to rice farming by now.

            Did we forget that the Koreans invented the printing press?

          • lolwut?

            They what?!!!

            Is that you Kim Jong-un?


          • lolwut?

            The movable type system you are thinking about was created by the Chinese and later built upon in Korea, they didn’t invent it.

            It was Johannes Gutenberg who invented a press that started the printing revolution.

          • Yes, just like the Chinese own a mountain in North Korea and fishing waters off of Vietnam.

            But then there’s that pesky culture/gene thing again.

          • lolwut?

            Nothing pesky at all, I said Asians are perfectly able to manage a modern society.

            Blacks move in or take charge, Neighbourhoods, cities, countries begin to decline. , crime goes up, property values drop, crops fail…. they scream for help, help comes, they fuck it up anyways.

            If you replaced North Koreans with blacks, they would have died of starvation, disease and tribal warfare decades ago.

            It’s that simple.

          • You made it clear that Asians invent (ed) nothing but were either copying or stealing from more inventive cultures. As it cannot be denied that many things were copied (and then innovated for the better) or stolen (hi, Chinese lack of copyright), it still remains that Asian countries remain standing despite Western cultures having left their political spheres. As for African or black American societies, how do you explain away those who DO work out their lives? Genetic anomalies?

            Genes do make the man, just not entirely. If you had to re-structure black American society where one had a stable family life (with a married mother and father) and where disorder was frowned upon, do you think that blacks would STILL be in gangs?

          • lolwut?

            Name one black society that isn’t at the western teet for survival.,

          • South Africa.

            I’d throw in Ben Carson into this mix but why bother?

            If your argument for genetic-based behaviour is sound, you will have to explain why the Chinese embraced communism and therefore death, or why the Ashkenazi Jews inter-married, or how the British benefitted from the Romans (now the Italians- tell me the “Jersey Shore” people are brain-trusts) when they formerly and erroneously believed that painting themselves blue would defeat organised armies, or how the Americans twice voted for Obama. Genetics doesn’t explain why people commit cultural suicide.

          • lolwut?
          • You used Wikipedia and “lol”.

            The argument is invalid.

          • lolwut?

            Uh ya right.

            South Africa has turned into one of the worst shitholes in Africa from being the richest, most productive country on the Continent.

            I bet you also think Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, Atlanta are just brimming with success also.

            Blacks are a failed race, suck it up libtard. your cover is blown.

          • I never said that but if you want to feel that blacks are inferior, go ahead. That’s all on you.

  • pop

    It’s monoculture. Good on them.
    At least they’re not diversity culture.

  • Pete

    The Guardian has to put in their plug for multiculturalism, with the misleading statistic in the final paragraph. New immigrants commit less crime than 2nd and 3rd generation folk – so what? Some of them maybe are still vaguely grateful for improving their circumstances and spending some time trying to do just that. Their children and grand-children, having a little in the way of resources (courtesy of the State, perhaps) are more prone to turning on their new countries, having the time and resources to easily do so.
    Also, not all immigrants are equivalent, to say the least. What would have been of more interest would have been to look at only muslim immigrants. Considering that they represent a disproportionate-to-their size percentage of inmates in western countries’ prisons, and their “culture” is such that they become *less* integrated into the societies that they invade, over time, not more.

    Japan is a great destination for travel by North Americans and Europeans. After all, you’re visiting a people with a wonderful culture that is intact and expressed everywhere since the country is 99% ethnic born and raised in Japan Japanese.

    This lack of “diversity” or “multiculturalism” is a breath of fresh air, as is seeing a people on their soil who have lived there for centuries and centuries, a people unambiguously confident in their own society and lack of immigration.
    Back in October 2005 I was a guest of the Japanese government for a week in east central Tokyo, and then I decided to stay an extra week and opted for a hotel in west central Tokyo.

    The only noticeable minorities back then were black annoying men in the Shinjuku District (strip clubs and red light area) who followed and relentlessly hounded primarily young white male tourists and expatriates (English instructors and businessmen) to enter strip clubs. If one, such as myself, refused to make eye contact or talk to these pathetic Nigerian English-speakers or take one of their pamphlets, they left you alone after 30 to 60 seconds.

    Meanwhile, back in Canada, the cultural legacy and demographic composition of our nation is more and more diluted, more and more Third World, more and more Muslim, less and less homogenous and safe and predictable. Thanks, Canadian government!

    The Japanese are *notorious* for ignoring crime. They under report all categories of crime from petty theft to murder. Remember the Tokyo subway pushers who used big brooms to shove people onto the subway cars? What you probably never heard was that there were insufficient trains during rush hour because mobsters and corrupt politicians were stealing a bunch of money. It took decades before the state finally took action, instead preferring to turn a blind eye. Anyway, you can google how japan under reports crime.
