I will be travelling from the U.S. to Asia for the first time in September, and I will be there for a month. I will be visiting Japan (Tokyo, Kyoto, Izu Peninsula) and China (Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an). I want to make sure that I get all of the vaccinations that I need, and that I start them early enough before I leave for my trip.
Based on my online research, I have listed the vaccinations that are relevant to the regions. Please let me know your thoughts and experiences on which to get and when to get them:
Also, what are your thoughts on eating food from street vendors? I was considering getting street food while in Tokyo (and elsewhere in Japan) some of the days; is this dangerous? How about street food in China?
Should I avoid raw (and possibly unwashed) fruits and vegetables in both Japan and China? Are there any other foods I should not eat while I am there? Are there any concerns with the sushi?
Should I avoid drinking tap water and stick to bottled water in both countries?
Thank you in advance for your responses!
