Entry to Awashima or Shishijima Limited to Essential Travel Only

    Entry to Awashima or Shishijima Limited to Essential Travel Only

    Recently, the entirety of Japan was declared to be in a state of emergency over the continuing spread of the novel coronavirus. In order to prevent the spread of this virus to the residents of Awashima Island and Shishijima Island, travel to both islands will be restricted to essential travel only. In the event that you must travel to one of these islands, please take all necessary precautions, including (but not limited to) wearing a surgical mask and sanitizing your hands.

     

    The residents of both Awashima Island and Shishijima Island are overwhelmingly elderly and have extremely limited access to medical care on their respective islands. Were the virus to spread there, the resulting illnesses would prove more severe than in the general populace.
    Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation in keeping the residents safe and healthy.

     

    【Closure Period】
    Non-essential travel will be stopped from Saturday, April 18 and continue indefinitely until further notice.
