This paper provides the first statistics on stigmatized properties in Tokyo, Japan, based on information posted by the general population on the website oshimaland.com. The data suggest that events are more likely to be posted when they are more recognizable to the public. In concrete terms, ratios of the numbers of posted events to the numbers of deaths reported in government statistics are much higher for homicides and fires than for suicides and solitary deaths. In addition, most deaths by homicides and fires are posted immediately after the events occur, whereas other events take longer to be posted.
