The aim of this study is to examine the structure of factors influencing fear of crime and the association between surrounding environment and fear of crime. 24 subjects walked along the designated route which consists of 19 links and evaluated each link by 10 factors with five point rating scales. Path analysis was used to identify relationship between fear of crime and the other 9 factors. Additionally, the number of eyes on/from around the street and the illuminance were measured for each link as properties of surrounding environment. In conclusion, subjective evaluation of brightness had the most relationship with fear of crime and subjective evaluation of eyes from around the street had the second most. Regarding illuminance, vertical illuminance was more associated with fear of crime than horizontal illuminance.
