Tourism Minister declares travel to Japan is safe
In response to the influenza A (H1N1) pandemic, the Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan, Kazuyoshi Kaneko, this morning declared that travel to Japan is safe.
Following is the Declaration of Safe Travel to Japan released by Minister Kaneko.
“The Government of Japan has made the maximum effort to minimise the health impact to the Japanese citizens and people travelling 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.”
