In the past few days, a rare Pokémon has been spotted in Tokyo’s Odaiba. Loads of people have shown up to catch it, and the crowds have become so big that the police were called in to handle the situation.

Damn. Folks have been running to catch Lapras, ignoring traffic lights in the process and causing all sorts of headaches, hazards and potential accidents. Because of the Pokémon’s location, people are overwhelming the roads and spilling out into traffic.

as a tourist, it's always good to be wary in tourist attractions like Odaiba or Ueno Park as these crowds of Pokemon Go players don't seem to be very mindful of other people or traffic. and just in case, keep check of your possessions at all times, and not be an easy target for pickpockets who may see these crowds as an opportunity.
