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.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
