Walking your dog alone after dark in Japan: VS Walking your dog alone after dark in the US: But seriously, one of the things I love about living here in Japan is the safety aspect. According to Sir Google, there were around 950 m**ders in Japan in 2020 versus around 21,500 m**ders in the US in the same year. Keep in mind that the population of the US is only less than 3 times bigger than that of Japan. WTF, America?!?! It's really nice to be able to go out and about by myself without always feeling like I need to be on high alert. Although I come from a small town in TN, I still don't think I would ever go out for a walk by myself at night. My dog isn't exactly intimidating, and m*th-heads run rampant in the countryside. If my husband and I ever decide to move back stateside, I'll definitely have to readjust quickly. How about your situation? Do you feel relatively safe and secure in your neighborhood? I never really ventured out of TN much when I was in the states, so I'm curious about how safety varies from place to place. BTW, have a picture of a heckin' good boy doin' a "bad boy." He always plants himself on the sidewalk and refuses to move as soon as he spots our house!
