We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered...

"Crime in Japan is generally low compared to other countries. Japan has a reputation for being a safe and secure country, and the overall crime rate is relatively low. However, there are still some areas where crime is more prevalent, such as in large cities. In recent years, there has been an increase in certain types of crime, such as cybercrime and organized crime. The Japanese government is taking steps to address these issues and ensure the safety of its citizens," remarked another expat who made the move to Japan.
