Tokyo is a relatively peaceful place to live. Safety is prioritized, signage is abundant, and most have no desire to “stir things up”. The people of Japan have earned their world-renown of being polite. Direct confrontation of any kind is avoided with an almost serene professionalism. Violence is rarely seen, shouting rarely heard. But rare is not never and in between the bowing of heads moments of chaos can be glimpsed. From mildly amusing to rather concerning Tokyo Jiken is a cautionary tale of things that can go wrong on the streets, even in Japan.
