By Mashable StaffPublished May 18, 2020 11:17:56It’s been one of the busiest travel months in recent memory for many Americans.
On Monday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that called for “effective and coordinated travel restrictions” in Japan, including banning travelers from the country, suspending travel to Guam, and temporarily halting the importation of American-made goods.
Here are some tips to stay healthy when you visit Japan:1.
Be aware of what you’re looking at.
While most Americans have the ability to get around Japan in a single day, the country is notorious for its extreme traffic jams, and a number of international airlines have shut down their flights in the past month to focus on dealing with the deadly heat wave.
That could mean some travel to Japan is going to be difficult.
For the uninitiated, the Japanese capital of Tokyo is known as the “Hotel of the Future.”
It’s also one of Tokyo’s most dangerous cities, with a homicide rate that has climbed to more than 100 per 100,000 residents, according to a government report.
If you’re going to visit Tokyo, stay at a hotel with a low-crime rating and use a public transportation system that doesn’t have too many stops or lines, according the Japan Travel Association.2.
Be mindful of your surroundings.
Although there are plenty of great things to do in Japan — from sushi and Japanese pop culture to hot springs and karaoke — the country’s transportation system is often not designed for the amount of traffic that you might be expecting.
In fact, there are some places where you may not even be able to see the street sign.
If that’s the case, try to avoid traveling in areas with dense crowds and slow-moving traffic, the Japan Transportation Agency said.
In addition, the government has strict traffic laws, meaning if you have to change lanes or make a turn, it’s usually the last thing you want to do.3.
If the weather is too bad, you should probably stay home.
Even in the midst of an extreme heat wave, you might want to keep an eye on the weather and keep an ear out for any signs of bad weather.
If it looks like your car is overheating, you’re probably not going to make it out of the city.
If the weather doesn’t look bad, but it feels like you might need to make a few stops or stops in your car to get to your hotel, that could be a sign that you may need to cancel your trip.4.
Keep your personal belongings at home.
While there are no restrictions on how much luggage you can bring into Japan, you can expect to see more and more travelers carrying extra clothing and extra clothes and other personal items as the country continues to battle the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection website states that all goods entering Japan must have “exterior protective apparel” that has been approved by the agency and is made in Japan.
The agency recommends not bringing your personal items into Japan unless you are sure they’re safe to wear and that you can take them home with you.5.
Wear a helmet when you travel.
The United States has had more than 60,000 coronaviral cases reported worldwide, but the number of cases has been dropping rapidly in recent days, with the World Health Organization saying it has seen a sharp drop in the number.
As of Monday, there were 3,721 confirmed cases worldwide.
The World Health Organisation has also said that Japan is in the top 20 countries in terms of the number and severity of the coronaviruses it’s testing.
The country’s rate is also higher than countries like France and Germany, which have lower rates.
