U.S. State Department Downgrades Japan Alert

The U.S. Department of State has further downgraded its alert for travel to Japan. Japan continues to struggle following the effects of the March earthquake and tsunami, but recovery is underway.

Japan Airlines is reporting that international air travel has declined 31 percent, which is less than anticipated. Similarly, Royal Caribbean International plans to redeploy Legend of the Seas to Japan as of August 1.

The new downgraded alert says that the situation at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant has shown significant decreases of radioactivity. The State Department has also announced that it is safe to use Japanese trains that travel through the evacuation zone around the plant.
