    Other than the exclusion zone around the Fukushimna plant, as safe as it ever was.
    There's little or no reason to be concerned about the big quake and tsunami. Some people believe there's a risk off higher than usual radiation, but what radiation exists would be so low, and you would be there for so short a period, that it is extremely unlikely to have any adverse health effects on you.
    There does exist (as always) a risk there could be a new earthquake because Japan sits on very volatile tectonic plates. .

    • I meant to add: crime is very low, public transport and infrastructure is very high standard and safe.... not things that can be said about the majority of places on earth. Ask Phil over 5 years ago

    I'm amazed. What a question to ask. Do some home work. The Japanese people are beautiful and resourceful, they have endured so much crap over the years. Give them some credit for being intelligent. Yes there have been mistakes, Yes there have been corrections. They will not let you go to a place that is unsafe. They will not let you eat, drink or inhale anything they didn't think was safe for themselves,.
    Please go there. I did. It was an exhilarating experience. They were so helpful. They treated all foreigners with respect and civility. I look forward to going back in the near future. The food, transport, culture was a great experience..
    If you are asking about the next Tsunami or Earthquake, you need to speak with a higher being. over 5 years ago
