the Triads and street gangs are organized crime (keyword: organized). They wouldn't go around messing with innocent people and shooting, robbing, stabbing, looting, raping, clout chasing, etc for no reason. That's the kind of bs we have to deal with here.

Except this is completely false: Link

Police statistics also indicate that gang members were investigated in 17,737 criminal cases in 2017. Of the total, 4,693 cases involved drugs, 2,095 were in relation to incidents of bodily harm and 1,874 were for theft.

There is crime in any major city.

The difference in Japan and US is that if you are caught for any crime the conviction rate is 93% In the US, it's 87% but the penalties are much more lenient than Japan. They put more people away for good for drug and gun possessions than we do.

Yakuzas are seen as samurais by some and organized mafias by other modern standards. They are far different than criminals we have here. For example they work armani suits and ties, how many street criminals here dress like that?

Crime in Japan is so rare that they have just a handful of murders. I've been there multiple times and never ever had worries about getting mugged, robbed, or pick pocketed. You don't even bump into knuckheads or getting into scuffles at the bar or at night.

In NYC, a fight is always waiting to happen and to be seen in the subways or the streets.

Well, also take into consideration that certain acts are not considered criminal. For instance, a man raping his wife or someone slapping someone are not crimes in other countries. In the US, these things are considered battery and assault. So statistically, those other countries look better.

Nice try. But just compare 1st world nations to each other. We don't need statistics to know crap countries have high crime.

I saw my first subway physical fight about 2 months ago around 12am. It was within a party of ghetto girls. They were loud among themselves for most of the ride. I transferred and ended up on the exact same train after express stop. When I got on they were now arguing and began fist fighting for 2 stops. "No not you yo, not you. Yo break it up! Aiite fight then! Etc" while throwing n slang bombs after every sentence. One of the girls almost bumped into me while they wrestled on the ground. I stepped over them lol. Should have recorded it.

Cool story bro.

But yea, I hardly ride 12am and lots of ghetto crap must go on at those hours. Just have to avoid certain people.

The false information keeps rolling...

There is still street crime, robbery, and other petty offenses in Japan. These crimes are not all carried out by honor-buro suit wielding samurais.

300-500 murders pear year over the past decade = a handful?

Is that count lower than the US? Yup. That doesn't mean USA streets are literal warzones as the pansies seem to suggest. Keep clutching the pearls every time you walk out the door or see someone wearing a dew rag. Because let's be honest by 'certain people' you meant to say minorities and/or anyone wearing hood apparel.

For a population of 128,000,000 - yes, Japan literally has a handful of murders a year. Human nature and large population = murder. That's the rule of law forever. That's not the point.

California alone had 1,800 murders in 2017. The whole country ~17,000 murders (lol).

But since Trump and ICEcapades it has dropped a lot.

No point even comparing. It's a joke and waste of time. Totally a cultural thing.

Those 300 murders are husband/wife crimes of passion which exist everywhere. There is virtually no street crime in Tokyo. You can leave your wallet on the subway filled with cash and you don't even have to go to the police. Whoever found your wallet will go out of their way and hand deliver it back to you with every penny intact. It's an amazing place.
