Koban or police box in the Yanaka district

Maybe the safest country

Koban or police box originated in Japan from 1875. Today the word Koban has become international because koban system has been introduced to several countries such as Brazil, Singapore and so on. Besides koban system, Japan has the large portion of the middle classes, so the disparity of society is less common than other countries. Anyway, the police in Japan strive to keep lives of citizens safe. If you want to learn about its activities and efforts, I recommend you visit Police Museum in Ginza in Tokyo. I believe that travellers from overseas are kept safe for these reasons. I would like to make your itinerary including this museum. Why don't you join me?

Police Museum reopend in April this year after its refurbishment
