So, maybe I'm being a nervous nellie here, but getting concerned about my up-coming trip to Japan, given the scope of the radioactive water leaks, and the fact that it is seeping into ground water... well, just doesn't make me comfortable.
Not so much that we are planning to visit near the exclusion zone, but its more the possibility of contaminated food and water that worry me.
At present the UK Gov has advised: The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to the exclusion zones around the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility identified by the Japanese authorities. On 19 August 2013, a new leak of around 300 tons of radioactive water was discovered at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility, causing Japanese regulators to issue an INES Level 3 rating.
So, does anyone have any experience with situations similar, and what the chances are of getting our tickets refunded or at the very least credit to be used for a trip elsewhere?
