Murder Rate in Major Cities of Japan, 2011

Major cities in Japan form the specific council about statistics. The council releases various statistics data. The latest data is the 2011 version. I picked the statistics of murder cases in those big cities. Please see the following table of murder rates in major cities in Japan. It includes the attempt cases. The number of actual victims was less than the below.

Osaka region is always the most dangerous place. Lower rank cities have wide rural area. I think it makes the rate low.
