Police Box ("Koban") System

Koban are the manned police boxes located in almost every Japanese neighborhood. They are usually marked with signs in English and red lights. If you need to ask directions, report lost or stolen items, or report a crime, a Koban is the place to go. In the vicinity of tourist destinations, Koban are likely to be staffed by English-speaking officers. If no English-speaking officer is on hand, the officer in the Koban can make use of a telephone interpreting service. Not all Koban are staffed 24-hours a day. The police can be reached at any time by calling 110 or the local numbers listed below.
