Tetanus. Booster required if you have not had one in last ten years. 3 injections a month apart if you never had one.

Vaccinations to consider- Japanese B Encephalitis long stay in rural areas - especially after rains (April - October)

Local Diseases - Schistosomiasis.

General Information. - E.Coli Epidemic from contaminated food in Tokyo in April 2001.

Make sure you take out comprehensive travel insurance and declare all existing health problems.
