Crime in Japan

edited October 2010 in - Japan
I'm planning a trip to Asia and Japan is on my list, but I want to know about safety in Japan. Is there a lot of crime in Japan? I know that big cities like Tokyo and Osaka are sure to have some crime, all countries do, but how much crime targets tourists and are there any scams that I should watch out for? Also is it safe to climb mount Fuji on your own or will I need a guide?

    LOWEST CRIME RATE IN THE WORLD. I HAVE BEEN THERE 6 TIMES AND HAD ONLY 1 OCCURRENCE AND IT WAS ANOTHER FOREIGNER WHO STOLE MY WALLET BUT AT LEAST WAS KIND ENOUGH TO LEAVE MY PASSPORT SOMEWHERE IT COULD BE RETRIEVE BY A NATIVE AND RETURNED TO ME. OTHERWISE YOU WOULD BE AMAZED AT HOW SAFE IT IS THERE, NOT COUNTING THE EARTHQUAKES AND TSUNAMIS.
