Very lucky for the traveler now
In Japan, the traveler is few now, because the foreigner fears the earthquake and the nuclear power plant. However, it is only a part of region in Tohoku. It is very very little area only. Most Japan had not damaged completely. So the people's life is not changed completely. The truth is this. Therefore, a traveler today is lucky very much. A lot of hotels are cheap now. The sightseeing spot is not crowded now. Transportation is normal excluding Tohoku. I recommend travel to Japan now.
