when traveling from the US to Japan

Vaccines

Japanese Encephalitis

is only recommended for those who frequently visit or are planning to spend a month or longer in areas with Japanese encephalitis.

Rabies

may be considered if planning activities that involve direct contact with animals or wildlife – ie. wild camping, cave exploring, or fieldwork in rural areas. As a rule, we recommend avoiding interaction with animals – even domestic pets may carry diseases.

Medications

Traveler’s Diarrhea Antibiotics

to alleviate an intestinal infection resulting from eating or drinking contaminated food or water. It is the most common travel-related illness and can occur anywhere, but the highest-risk destinations are in Asia, Africa, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Middle East.

Altitude Sickness Medication

if you plan to visit high elevation areas including Mount Fuji. Consider traveling with medication for altitude sickness as symptoms set in within the first 6-24 hours.
