 Be Aware: pickpocket tactics | British Transport Police

Pickpockets use a variety of tactics and distractions to relieve you of your valuables. Learn about them so you don’t become a victim of crime.


Jenny Truong‘s insight:

A great article and video of the common trips pick pockets use to steal from their unsuspecting targets. I’ve been a victim of "The Helpful Stranger" when an old lady tried to wipe the spit(from the accomplice) off my shoulder. However, she lost interest once my hands were on my purse to grab tissues.

 Mount Fuji, So Popular It Hurts

The vexing challenge of protecting Japan’s most recognizable natural landmark grows more intense as Mount Fuji is added to Unesco’s World Heritage list.

Mt. Fuji is one of the most iconic symbols of Japan and is a must-see for tourists. You don’t necessarily have to climb the mountain to appreciate it’s beauty. You’ll probably enjoy it much more if you’re not cold or tired from a long hike.
