Japan is well known for being a safe country, but it is by no means a crime-free or
disaster-free country. It’s best to take the same precautions you would in your home country while also bearing in mind that—as a foreigner—you might stand out in your community. In the past there have incidents of JETs witnessing or being harassed, burglarized, stalked, or attacked. Please contact your PAs, supervisor, or CLAIR immediately if you experience an incident or you feel that your safety is being threatened.
