Japan - Safety
The vast majority of visits to Japan are trouble-free. It is generally a very safe country with low levels of common crime, and is stable, highly developed and modern. Travelers should, however, still be vigilant about personal safety and belongings. Typhoons are common particularly from June to October and travelers should take note of storm warnings along the coastal regions if traveling during this period. Japan is in a major earthquake zone, and earthquakes of varying sizes occur very frequently.
