How has Covid-19 affected Tokyo and Japan? To be honest, it hasn’t been the happiest or most relaxing time. Thankfully, numbers have dropped significantly since the rollout of vaccines. You can keep tabs on the number of new cases through the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
Nevertheless, we’re doing our best to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the virus by spending time inside. Whether you’re just passing through Japan, or living here for the long haul, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face and practice social distancing if you must go outside.
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.
