Why do I need travel insurance for Japan?


As a traveler in Japan, you may be excited to navigate the pulsing streets and nightlife of Tokyo or retreat to an onsen in Kyoto. But before you embark on your trip, it’s important to consider shielding your trip budget from unplanned expenses with travel insurance.

Why? Sometimes fate may have the upper hand during your travels in Japan. Amidst your exciting itinerary, you may find yourself falling while hiking Mount Fuji, dealing with canceled flights in the event of an earthquake, or losing luggage on your way to see the cherry blossoms. If something does throw off your Japan vacation itinerary that puts you and your finances at risk, travel insurance from Travelex can help provide support.

So, if you’re dreaming of taking part in traditional tea ceremonies or tearing down the powder-drenched ski fields of Hokkaido, don’t forget to think about protecting your journey to Japan with travel insurance.
