Travel Insurance going to Japan

Japan (Capital Tokyo) was struck by a Tsunami and earthquake on 11th March 2011 and current advice is to avoid those areas affected including the Fukushima Reactor (radioactivity is an excluded condition anyway). Travel insurance will therefore not be valid in those areas but there are no problems for the rest of Japan. Compare travel insurance premiums through our quotation system for holidays, long stay, independent and backpacker travel as well as cheap premiums for the over 65.

Countries Bordering Japan

No land borders. Russia and South Korea are closest.
