Tokyo Crime Maps
Saturday, March 18, 2006 Posted: 08:18 AM JST
The Tokyo Metropolitan Police has published a series of maps showing crime in Tokyo on its site. Different colors show which areas have seen an increase or decrease in crimes. Crimes are categorized into 'purse snatching', 'breaking and entering, private property', 'breaking and entering, commercial property', 'theft on train or vehicle' and 'violent crimes'.
Unfortunately, there are no English explanations, but with a good translation site that is not really a problem.
