For a tourist Japan is safe, and almost any country on the planet in comparison is more dangerous. The difference is Japan still has social morals which sadly are lacking in New Zealand or any other country like Australia, England, the US etc. 99.99% of tourists to Japan leave thinking it is the safest place in the world. The same cannot be said for Japanese travelling overseas. As the Japanese are generally too trusting due to the safety of their own country a warning is appropriate. Ignorance from the Auckland mayor about Japanese people is not going to help the situation but working to make New Zealand as safe as Japan could do wonders for its image worldwide. If New Zealand loses it green clean safe image then expect fallout.
