The land of the rising sun is know for many things. Mount Fuji, Samurai, Anime, Sushi and wacky game shows. But what it isn't widely known for is its incredibly safe streets. Not just for drivers, but for people on bikes or just simply walking. I hope I can convey the simple safety of Japanese streets and the importance of incorporating their essence into our own streets here in North America.

Only managed to travel to Japan once but really loved walking around. Metros and trains were quite approachable even without a smartphone.

Definitely the most mobile I’d felt without a car at that point in my life!
