U.S. Department of State Reissues Travel Alert for Japan

The U.S. Department of State has issued another travel alert for U.S. citizens traveling to and in Japan. This alert replaces the warning that was issued on March 31 and it will expire on June 15.

According to the alert, U.S. government agencies still believe that it is still unsafe for citizens to travel within a 50-mile radius of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. However, travel to outlying areas outside of the nucelar power plant zone, including Tokyo, Nagoya, Yokohama, Akita, Aomori, Chiba, Gunma, Iwate, Nagano, Niigata, Saitama, Shizuoka, Tochigi and Yamanashi, does not pose a significant health risk.
