I got the impression that Japan is probably one of the safest countries to go travelling alone. I am thinking about it more that I'm planning on going on holiday to Japan by myself though. Obviously some things are common sense - staying away from dodgy areas, not getting crazy drunk, staying with crowds etc. But to what extent (as a girl) do you need to be cautious? There are places where going anywhere as a foreigner on your own at any time is inviting trouble, and then there are places where a girl can walk on her own in the middle of the night and not get hassled at all.
