How has Coronavirus affected Japan | Is it still safe to travel?

Podcasts  Pete   On this week's episode of Abroad in Japan, we're talking all about the Coronavirus, and the impact it's had on Japan so far. We discuss the precautions the government have been taking, how it's affecting tourism, and advise you whether you need to cancel your travel plans - short answer...no!

Also on today's show, Pete's sharing his experience of an ANA Room, seaweed farming and we take a usual dive into the mailbox. We’re answering your questions about Suica cards and Chris's recent trip to a haunted house.
