How has Covid-19 affected Tokyo and Japan? To be honest, it has been challenging, to say the least. Thankfully, numbers have dropped significantly since the recent Omicron wave.

The rollout of vaccines, while sluggish at first, was successful and booster shots are now well underway. If you plan on getting tested, especially if you're travelling, there are now a number of places where you can book a PCR test and receive the necessary travel certificate.

To keep tabs on the number of new Covid-19 cases in Japan, visit the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.

If you’re not feeling well, or if there’s an emergency, the Japan National Tourism Organization has set up a 24-hour coronavirus hotline for tourists, available in English, Chinese and Korean. Call 050 3816 2787 within Japan, or +81 50 3816 2787 from overseas.

For foreign residents living in Japan, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare operates a Covid-19 hotline, available in multiple languages including Chinese, English, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese.
