Of course, crime still happens in Tokyo. Crime happens basically everywhere.
That being said, the “personal theft” crime in Tokyo is comparatively lower than anywhere else I’ve lived. I feel comfortable leaving my bag and laptop unattended at a cafe, while ordering another drink, going to the bathroom, or ducking outside to make a call.
I did this the other day and when I came back to my spot, I was just like “dang, I’ve been in Japan too long…”
BY THE WAY, this comic was colored by the wonderful Janine Antonio :)
