Declaration of Safe Travel to Japan

26 June 2009

The Government of Japan has made the maximum effort to minimize the health impact to the Japanese citizens and people traveling in and out of Japan and assure the safety of everyone within the country ever since the global outbreak of the H1N1 virus. Consequently, most of the infected patients have recovered.

Therefore, this is to inform you that there is no health concern regarding trips to Japan, and that tourism in Japan is as safe and enjoyable. One needs only to take general preventive caution for ordinary influenza.

Summer travel season is just around the corner, and we hope as many people as possible enjoy this year��s vacation travel to Japan as usual.


Kazuyoshi Kaneko
Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan
