You say you will do anything it takes "I have a few long years to train before moving to japan" , yet your first post says you want to move here in only 12 months.
Ramen and shogi are nice, but if you want to be a police officer something you have not explained why , it's going to take more than an interest in hobbies and food to convince immigration.
I don't mean to be dismissive, BUT You want to become a police officer in Japan for some unexplained reason, yet you are so ridiculously far from achieving ANY of the minimum requirements for the job.
Are you a Japan national? No Did you go through The Japanese education system? No Do you even speak, read or write Japanese?
No Do you meet any of the minimum requirements for even getting a visa to live in Japan, let alone citizenship?! No The people above are being a little too kind, perhaps out of fear of being admonished.
At this point, you might as well be planning for your next life. There's no guarantee that even after all the years spent just trying to make yourself eligible you'd even be accepted into the academy, or pass through the program, or get an appointment, or even like your job when you get stuffed into a tiny koban in tottori.
Go and visit and enjoy yourself. You'll probably see a lot of Japanese police as they stop you and harrass you for looking suspicious. Study Japanese if you want, that's at least a reasonable goal.
It helps when your goals have a solid foundation in reality. You've never been to Japan, yet want to denounce your citizenship to work and live there?
Whose koolaid have you been drinking? Joined 15 Mar Messages 16, Reaction score 2, I should have specified that he'll probably be harrassed only if engaged in suspicious activities, like riding a bike.
Mike Cash said:. I realize that it is the popular thing to do, but I will not sit silently while you unfairly malign the entirety of the Japanese police force like that.
Either substantiate your contention, modify it to reflect reality, or withdraw it entirely. Glenski said:. Mylynes said:. Japanese government ministries and agencies.

They conduct surveys of local businesses and record employee names and addresses, in addition to such data as which establishments stay open late and which employees might be expected to work late.
Participation in the survey is voluntary, and most citizens cooperate. Information elicited through the surveys is not centralized but is stored in each Koban, where it is used primarily as an aid to locating people.
Police vehicles, as the core of the mobile police force, take on the task of responding to daily occurrences of crimes and accidents.
They are also used for street patrolling and other police activities. Approximately 42, police vehicles are equipped at police stations, police boxes Koban , and residential police boxes Chuzaisho throughout the country.
As a mobile police force in the air, police helicopters are used extensively for traffic control surveillance, pursuit of suspects, rescue, and disaster relief.
A total of approximately 80 small and medium-sized helicopters are operated nationwide. Motorcade of the Imperial Guard in Tokyo.

If you are doing anything that they think they need to "teach" you about the rules of being Japanese, they will. They will stop you and waste 30 minutes or more depending on what they want to say to you.
If you are detained, you are gone for hours and sometimes they will not let you go unless they release you to another Japanese person that knows you.
Very racist if you ask me. Thats exactly what I was talking about, Best to know at least one Japanese person who has your corner.
And just because some other gaijin says "I have never experienced racism, or police, or this or that There are many situations thats why they call it situational ethics where the law and enforcement are applied differently in Japan.
Its kind of like Every gaijin I have met, has had an experience either parallel to mine, or in some cases, much worse.
There are some precautions, that I and others have posted, you should know. Ignore at your own risk. Own your experiences and dont blame yourself, but dont be ignorant of your surroundings.
I was punched in the face by a drunk guy on the train. The police never once treated it like it was anything other than the other guy who was at fault.
Beside ID also riding bicycle as foreigner can be easily end up as a target. Of course so far there is no data that can show correlation between bicycle theft and foreigners.
What usually happened, foreigners just not get used to bicycle registration system since not so many countries have that system. So lot of foreigners just not taking full details about registration when they get their bicycle from person before them or from buying online even bicycle that they use is perfectly legal.
Firstly, unless the law has changed recently, it is 43 days you can be held without charge. Amnesty International often have their sights on Japan.
Secondly, in my nearly two decades in Japan, mainly in Osaka and Kobe, foreigners can be, and often will be charged in cases Japanese would be let off: foreign crime or even the possiblity of a crime unproven is frequently treated far more sternly, in fact, borderline criminally by the police themselves.
Thirdly, I have had to file complaints against the police twice in my time here for harrassment: no crime committed. Fourthly, the only time I have ever had real trouble with the police, no arrest nor conviction, I was interrogated for 6 hours, and given an awful interpretor who was literally Elementary level English - in downtown Kobe, not the countryside.
The whole process led to a nine month wait to see a prosecutor who literally threw the case out within minutes.
The police had nothing, and instead of suing them, I left Japan in disgust. After your initial arrest by police, you must be placed before a judge within 72 hours, at which point the prosecutor can request an extension of ten days which is rarely rejected.
After that ten days, another ten day extension can be requested again, rarely rejected , bringing it to 23 days. Under extremely rare circumstances, an additional five day extension can be requested, though the police usually just lay a separate charge triggering a new round of 23 days.
What happened is usually they brought multiple charge against you. So every time new charge is being brought the whole process can be reset again.
This only if they brought two charges, if you got more charges mean more days. I have had to file complaints against the police twice in my time here for harrassment: no crime committed.
Interesting Catch in the law is that Japanese themselves are not required to carry any ID, nor to identify themselves to police unless they are under arrest or lawful detention.
So, naturalized foreigners who have obtained Japanese citizenship can just blow the police off by telling them 'I am Japanese'.
In practice, good luck. When stopped for apparently no reason, the best thing to do is be as silent as possible.
Don't show too much in the way of Japanese language skills if you have them , or the police will use it against you, speaking ever faster and ever more complicated.
In turn, you need to SHOW not give him yours. Be careful if he tries to snatch it from your hand, you don't want to do anything that can be construed as violent or aggressive.
Minimalist is the way to go without letting your rights be abused. Don't show too much in the way of Japanese language skills if you have them , or the police will use it against you.
Depends on your level of Japanese. I've been able to take care of incidents with the police in a few minutes, that took hours to work out before I was able to speak the language.
Agreed, Nihongo pera pera gaijin is not credible in Japanese society view, and this is not a good strategy.
As one of thoshe 'nihongo pera pera gaijin', I assure you that if you speak Japanese well enough, the benefits of being able to communicate and sort out issues with the police FAR outweigh the hassles of pretending you cannot communicate with them.
In fact, the only people I find making the claim that it's better to not speak Japanese, are those who don't speak it well. I've never known anyone who had proper Japanese fluency and I know a lot of these people who said it was better for those fluent in Japanese to pretend they cannot speak it at such times.
I don't mind being stopped by a friendly police officer, but once I was with my friend and 2 guys came up wearing black windbreakers. I suspected they were undercover police and sure enough, after passing by once they turned around and showed their badges.
They then started asking my friend about his bike and eventually called it in to see if it was registered. Not sure if they singled him out and not me due to him not being white, but the whole situation was very weird because they were staring at us in their disguises instead of coming right up and asking to check the registration.
I can understand where pera pera would help as opposed to not knowing any Japanese at all. If you dont know any Japanese get ready for fun and games, your at the mercy of the wolves.
The problem with pera pera gaijin is they can just keep doing the circle jerk logic of "but he said" until you submit. A third party, with your interest at stake, can circumvent the loop logic and save your day.
A lot is simply to do with politeness to authority. I was in the benefit office welfare office in London about 6 months ago where it kicked off over nothing.
When you enter, you're told to find a seat and sit down. It's for safety reasons, so you don't suddenly attack the staff.
So, I walk in and the security guard a low paid bloke in a black suit is a bit abrupt with me. He tells me to sit down a bit rudely.
Let's say his customer service could've been better, but I'm like 'sure, no problem sir'. A guy in his mid 20s walks in, doesn't like the 'attitude' and suddenly a big argument kicks off.
Everyone in the benefit office stops what they're doing and is just staring at him being restrained on the floor. What happens? What a plank. All he had to do was say 'sure!
If only that were true. I have a lot of friends and colleagues as well as myself who have experienced total disrespect from the police as soon as they knew you were a foreigner, or simply looked at you: cognitive bias Once again, I'm speaking as a 'pera pera gaijin', and I would say the "circle jerk logic" you speak of is going to be dependent on the person, and their understanding of Japan.
Anyone who speaks Japanese and understands that the police are more interested in getting rid of problems, rather than sorting out whose fault it is, is not going to get hung up on "but he said".
I've never been stopped once since moving here in the mid 's, lived in Roppongi 25 years no problems. Only when I was victimized assaulted in did ugliness rear its head.
Meguro police sheltered the perp, destroyed evidence, lied in report, etc. I learned a victim has little recourse if police decide to screw you.
One cannot sue them directly, can only sue the NPA which is the government. US Embassy told me they cannot intervene in private cases.
I showed them awards I received in Vietnam, no matter. Go figure. This seems more like it's aimed at football fans rather than rugby fans.
Rugby fans in the UK are, by and large, well-behaved. A fair number of Scots fans like to party and wear kilts with no drawers underneath I've been visiting Japan fairly regularly for the last 13 years and I've only ever been stopped once, at the Narita railway station waiting for the Skyliner to Tokyo.
Asked for my passport, asked some questions and saluted. Hopefully if rugby fans are stopped they won't go into 'chip on the shoulder' mode and start arguing.
OK, seriously though if the cops stop you, keep calm, show them your ID you should always have some form of ID on you , answer their questions and you should be OK.
I make it a point to know policemen in my neighborhood Meguro. They know I did commo for Interpol in Cambodia, we talk daily in passing, no probs, but when a Japanese assaulted me all that goodwill went out the window - it was me against them.
Former veteran police officer Akio Kuroki retired and became anti police corruption journalist. He told me the entire NPA is filthy corrupt can never be corrected until it's dismantled and rebuilt from scratch.
He spent all his money protesting against the police, when he was found dead in his car in a suspicious suicide the police cheered.
Respected journalist Yu Teresawa has been protesting exposing corrupt police and officials his entire career, had a few demoted and fired.
He agrees. There are others out there if you do the research. It's a shame no one trusts the police. I once did but never again. Experienced something similar.
Unitl it happens to you, then there isnt much empathy, so I never count on receiving it. Had a hit and run done on me, guy was found, not arrested, kind of bizzare thing We do appreciate our embassy staff, however, especially our ambassador, when she does videos dancing about Japan.
I dont count on anybody after that experience. Cooperation and understanding go a long way in Japan with the police.
They are only doing the job, that's it nothing more. However I disagree with this comment in the article: "But differences in culture and behavior exist.
I have visited numerous countries and yet to be in one where its normal to behave as such implied. Just yesterday I was in Aomori pref and witnessed a Japanese national pop out his business and relieve himself in the side of the road and moments later another one behind a shed but where ongoing traffic could be witness.
A police car passed by but did nothing. To my understanding, that is illegal,. I see it daily however. Its one of those, oyaji hierarchy things, like a relic from the past, that they overlook, because the old man has allot of clout in Japan.
The roads here are full of legendary sports and powerful vehicles. Japanese law forces use the most successful automobiles in the world for patrolling.

Car Review. The Peace Preservation Law of gave police the authority to arrest people for "wrong thoughts". Special Higher Police Tokko were created to regulate the content of motion pictures, political meetings, and election campaigns.
The Imperial Japanese Army 's military police Kempeitai and the Imperial Japanese Navy 's Tokkeitai , operating under their respective services and the justice and home ministries aided the civilian police in limiting proscribed political activity.
After the Manchurian Incident of , military police assumed greater authority, leading to friction with their civilian counterparts.
After police directed business activities for the war effort, mobilized labor, and controlled transportation. After Japan's surrender in , occupation authorities in World War II retained the prewar police structure until a new system was implemented and the Diet passed the Police Law.
Contrary to Japanese proposals for a strong, centralized force to deal with postwar unrest, the police system was decentralized.
About 1, independent municipal forces were established in cities, towns, and villages with 5, inhabitants or more, and a National Rural Police was organized by prefecture.
Civilian control was to be ensured by placing the police under the jurisdiction of public safety commissions controlled by the National Public Safety Commission in the Office of the Prime Minister.
The Home Ministry was abolished and replaced by the less powerful Ministry of Home Affairs , and the police were stripped of their responsibility for fire protection, public health, and other administrative duties.
When most of the occupation forces were transferred to Korea in —51 with the Korean War , the 75, strong National Police Reserve predecessor of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force was formed outside the Regular police organizations to back up the ordinary police during civil disturbances.
And pressure mounted for a centralized system more compatible with Japanese political preferences. The Police Law was amended in to allow the municipal police of smaller communities to merge with the National Rural Police.
Most chose this arrangement, and by only about cities, towns, and villages still had their own police forces. Under the amended Police Law, a final restructuring created an even more centralized system in which local forces were organized by prefectures under a National Police Agency.
The revised Police Law of , still in effect in the s, preserves some strong points of the postwar system, particularly measures ensuring civilian control and political neutrality, while allowing for increased centralization.
The National Public Safety Commission system has been retained.
