Safe to go Japan now

Having a flight to Japan next week. Thought of canceling but bought a non-refundable ticket.

I honestly think the situation in Singapore right now is worse than Japan. I'm going to Japan soon too.

Given a choice, I'd rather be in JP now for a few weeks. About time to try shinrin-yoku (forest bathing)

Foreigners who have visited China’s Hubei province within the past 14 days have been denied entry into Japan since Feb. 1. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he’s considering an expansion of immigration curbs.

Not sure if they have implemented yet.

I personally think it's better not to go now.
Later cannot come back...

There's no such thing as your home country don't allow you home/in.

If don’t count the cruise ship, SG more cases than JP, no? And some more if consider on per capita basis, seems like staying here is more risky than going to JP 🤪

I'm actually flying in March next month. Personally email to SIA ytd whether do they allow full refund due to the coronavirus, they say no since the purchase is a non-refundable ticket.
