Travel Risks in Japan

Do not travel to Area 3 near the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant, due to the risk of radiation. Consult a guide before travelling anywhere outside of commercial Japan.

Japan is a fairly safe country to visit, the locals are friendly and the glitz of technology will make you feel safe in the cities.

However, keep an eye on your belongings at all time and never leave them unattended, as there is always a risk of pickpocketing in built up areas.

Be aware of credit card skimming and other monetary scams.

Japan is very safe for Women travellers, however during rush hours, women should note that gropers do hunt crowded trains. However, they usually look for Local Women (presumably they are less likely to make a scene). Luckily, many trains heading to the suburbs have Women only cars.
