Attention

Japan is widely considered a safe country. If you are only visiting you will find hotels and restaurants generally accepting as long as courtesy and their establishment rules are respected. That said and despite this reputation, members of the LGBTQ+ community often face prejudice and unequal treatment in their personal lives. While Japanese society is generally law-abiding and violence is rare, barriers persist for LGBTQ+ individuals in various aspects of work and daily life.

In terms of law enforcement, the police are known for their strict adherence to the law, regardless of one's nationality or sexual orientation. It's crucial to carry official identification, such as a passport or residence card, as Japanese police may request it at any time. Failure to provide identification could lead to trouble. It's essential for all travelers to respect Japanese laws and refrain from bringing or using illegal substances. This includes drugs that may be legal in other countries, such as poppers or certain prescription medications. Prior research on Japanese laws and regulations is highly recommended before traveling, especially if you intend to bring in any medication.

In case of legal issues, travelers are advised to contact their embassy for assistance, as Tokyo Rainbow Pride cannot offer legal or judicial support to visitors.
