Do I need to have a complete physical before traveling to Japan?

We encourage you to have complete physical and dental examinations before traveling abroad. Review and update routine immunizations as needed.

Depending on your itinerary, your personal risk factors, and the length of your stay, your practitioner (physician, nurse, physician assistant, or nurse-practitioner) may offer you vaccinations against hepatitis B, tick-borne encephalitis, influenza, or Japanese encephalitis.
