@Ill buy for $5 a piece, sorry but the council told me to put down my business because I was scamming people and it might make Africa lose visitors. Maybe comeback in 12938479238749287 years, I'll come up with a bargain for special customers and friends. Note that I don't have any friends, yet. They're all jealous of my extravagant air freshners.

Agree with #JjXM,in some part of the city,you'd better keep vigilant.

It's not as safe as people say. Lots of freaks follow you around and stalk you, specially if you are good looking and white. I had a guy following me with a camera.

Many foreign and japanese girls have been found dead with dismembered bodies in rivers and apartments, the media wont show you this because they want japan to be perceived as a safe country. If you have lived there and follow the news, you'll see that it isnt.

The men can act violently if you dont do what they want in a relationship.

I had a poop a few seconds ago and wanted to watch some funny videos and I accidentally ended up on THIS website. I took a look at this website and realised how neat it was, even neater than my most fashionable toilet I had placed in my living room in case I need to go number 2. Well I never really bothered to clean me bum bum or flush the toilet, but whenever the house stinks I would blame the dog. A few days ago, a house inspector came over to my house to inspect it, and when I offered them a free air freshener that was exclusively brown shaped in a sausage shape, he said "no thank you" and walked off to the house next door. Let me tell you, the longest I have ever had a neighbour for was probably a month or so, mainly because they've been filing complaints about me to the police about my air fresheners. The police then gave me something called a 'fine' and so I offered him an air freshener, and a few seconds later, he abruptly fell onto the floor, so I just assumed that he liked the air fresheners too much and decided to pass out. So I didn't really bother to call the first aid van that drives to my neighbours house every week.

Very safe. I've never felt the least bit worried about violent crime or property crime here. No drug issues, or issues with panhandlers or the like.
