### Tokyo named the world's safest city ###
« on: February 01, 2015, 11:12:18 PM »




Tokyo, the world's most populated city, is also the safest according to a 2015 Safe Cities Index by The Economist.

The index, which looks at digital security, health security, infrastructure safety and personal safety, ranks the Japanese capital ahead of Singapore second and Osaka third. European capitals Stockholm and Amsterdam complete the world's top five safest cities.

Australia's most populous city, Sydney, just missed out the top five (by less than a point) coming in at number six in the Index. The habour city was followed by Zurich in seventh place and Toronto in eighth. The world's friendliest city and arguable Australia's "hippest" city, Melbourne, was named the ninth safest city in the world.

Only one USA city made the top 10 in the Index; the city that never sleeps – New York – rounded off the top 10.

On the other end of the scale, Jakarta, with an urban population of over 10 million ranked at the bottom of the list of 50 cities in the Index. Cities which also tipped the other end of the scale from 45th to 49th spots, respectively, are: Mexico City, Riyadh, Johannesburg, Ho Chi Minh City and Tehran.

The Index noted that people living in Mexico City felt as safe as residents living in Zurich. By comparison, it noted in US cities people tend to be more fearful even though its cities ranked at the upper end of the Index.

Tokyo scored the highest in the digital security category, but that category was dominated by US cities: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago making the category's top ten. By contrast European cities performed poorly, with London at 16, being the highest-ranking European city in the digital security, and Rome is the lowest, at 35.

Tokyo, with a population of 38 million people according to the UN, proves that megacities can be safe cities. The five other megacities that made the top half of the Index include: Osaka, New York, Los Angeles, Paris and London.

Apart from Buenos Aires, the remaining 14 megacities ranked in the lower half of the index are all in countries with emerging economies. These include Brazil, Russia, India, China, Mexico, Indonesia and Turkey.

However, being among the safest cities in the world doesn't necessarily equate to being the best city in which to live. Tokyo was ranked at 16 when it comes to the question of the best place to live. That title goes to hockey-loving nation, Canada, with Toronto named the best place to live, followed by Montreal.

European cities Stockholm and Amsterdam, the only two cities to make the top five in the overall Index, came in at three and four, with San Francisco rounding up the top five. Melbourne came in at six, with Sydney at nine after Zurich and Washington DC. Despite its gritty reputation, Chicago made the top 10 best places to live (at number 10).

Ask people to come up with three words to describe Japan, and you'd probably get ... expensive, modern, and safe.

Expensive? Absolutely.

Modern? Well... relatively.

And Safe? Not necessarily.

In this trusting country, where people once left their doors and windows open and their car keys in the ignition, things have changed.

Break-ins are up, but more disturbing to most Japanese is the increase in break-ins involving violence. Earlier this year a family of four was murdered during a break-in.

National Police Agency figures show that the number of break-ins this year were two-and-a-half times more than last year. In the greater Tokyo area, there were 32,000 reported breaking and entering cases.

Car thefts have also been on the rise. Last year, 56,000 cars were stolen, up from 43,000 in 1999.

Economic Factors

Japanese media reports generally connect rising crime with a decade of stagnant economic conditions and poor employment prospects.

Crime in the past had traditionally been confined to Japanese crime gangs who rarely involved outsiders.

But the enactment of anti-gang legislation in 1992 has forced gangs to seek new sources of income, leading to a rise in turf wars among Japan's organized crime syndicates.

It is difficult to describe just how shocking this change is to the average Japanese citizen.

Personal safety is something people here have taken for granted for centuries, and it's still true that in most parts of Tokyo, people can walk about day and night without fear of being harmed.

But Japan's famous wa, or harmony, is under attack.

One telling measure of how things have changed; sales of locks and security devices are booming.

Do-It-Yourself Safety

Tokyu Hands Shibuya, a popular and always packed do-it-yourself store in a trendy district of Tokyo, was selling 10 times as many security devices so far this year than they did last year, and since a special home security section opened last November, business had soared.

"People are trying to upgrade their old locks to new ones which are stronger and better," Spokeswoman Saho Iwao told ABCNEWS.com. "But demand is now so high, for cylinder locks, customers actually have to wait for a month."

Other big sellers include security cameras, bugging devices, concealed cameras, window opening alarms and anti-car theft devices. Some specialty items even have a waiting list that sometimes takes months to service.

But while the rest of the world may be well accustomed to locks and bolts and battening down the hatches at night, the Japanese are not. For them, this change is both a reality check, and an end of innocence.

bcos red light stuff is legal there.

Legal means the pros.titutes there are protected by laws, they are not easily manipulated by gangs

Gangs also hard to cari makan, so there the gangsters are weak over there
