Even if Japan is one of the safest places on earth, things can still go wrong.

Japan, where strictly adhered to traditions honour the past and technological wonders propel the nation into the future. Where the busiest road crossing in the world is located, but where you can also find serenity in nature reserves and temples.

Petty crime is very rare, but there are things to be aware of:

  • Earthquakes

    Earthquakes and typhoons are common and sometimes severe. If you travel in Japan you probably will experience an earthquake, so here's what to do.

  • Drugs & Medicines

    Importation of pharmaceutical medicines is strictly policed, so don't get caught out.

  • Radiation

    We often get asked about radiation in Japan. But no need to worry.

  • 5 things to know before you go

    Whatever image you have of Japan, it's probably accurate, because it's all there. But you may also have some misconceptions about Japan.
