Japan Increases G7 Summit Security 2023

The police have enhanced security at various locations, including airports and main train stations, in preparation for the Group of Seven summit scheduled for May 19-21 in Hiroshima.

They have increased patrols of so-called soft targets, which are defined as sites where significant numbers of the general public have easy access.

On Friday, a large number of uniformed officers patrolled Haneda Airport in Tokyo, inspecting waste cans for suspicious objects and examining the runways with binoculars.

In 2005, when a summit was held in Britain, terrorist attacks occurred approximately 600 kilometers away in London.

A senior police official stated, “Anywhere in Japan could be a target.” “[Police] nationwide will be on high alert.”
