Have all of you heard about the recent weather catastrophes in Japan? Are all of you aware of the floods in Hiroshima and Kyushu and the evacuations? Is there similar weather elsewhere in Japan such as in Kyoto, Osaka, Takayama, and Tokyo?

Hi there,

As for as I know these are all very local happenings. No train services have been effected and there haven't been any episodes in the last 24 hours. I think you'll be perfectly fine in Japan.

If the weather is not good, I'd recommend exploring the bigger cities instead of venturing out.
