I loved Japan. So many different sides to it. A very clean, safe city, bustling with life.
Young Lunatic will be 40 years old in 3 years time & wants to go there. I'll be 60 exactly a month later, so we've said we'll go back for a joint birthday trip. Can't wait Smiley

Great photos. Some fantastic cars. Glad you had such a good time. Hard to know when you go somewhere new. I am surprised it was so safe as you tend to think of the Yakuza in Japan. Safety sure makes a visit more enjoyable though.  Smiley

I've no idea what that is -maybe blissful ignorance is the way to do it. If you worried about everything you'd never go anywhere.

Apparently Tokyo has almost zero crime.
Maybe at a higher level than the average tourist would see. In a week, I saw maybe 2 Police cars. Lots of little guys in various uniforms, directing traffic & pedestrians, but didn't notice any Police.
The lowriders car meet I went to filled a circuit of streets on the outskirts of Shibuya & was still going strong at 2 in the morning, with cars cruising around, hopping & scraping with music pumping -not a single Policeman. It's all very civilised.
